If you wish to explore the heritage of Jordan, one of the best places to visit would be The Jordan Museum. Having a rich collection of artifacts, this place will take you through Jordan’s historic and cultural development. Rather than distorted facts, it presents the journey of this country as an engaging story. Sharifa Nofa Bint Nasser, the museum’s director, remarked, “The uniqueness of it would be depicting the story of the land of Jordan and its people through time.” She also added, “We are looking forward to it to become the storyteller of Jordan.”
Treasures from the past held in this museum include the Dead Sea Scrolls, a double-headed plaster statue which from 7500 BC, stone carved zodiac signs, handmade clay coffins shaped as humans and even animal bones that are nearly 1.5 million years old. These relics belong to almost every era of past- the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, the Islamic period till the modern Jordan.
Construction of a new complex is underway and it will be the site for outdoor exhibitions, lecture halls, a library, a conservation center and an area for children’s activities.
