Cars & History – The Royal Automobile Museum, Jordan

I love history and I love cars, so naturally, the Royal Automobile Museum was one of the places I had on my “where to go in Amman” checklist. A couple of weeks ago I managed to get out there to check it out. Here’s my experience…

About the Museum

The Royal Automobile Museum isn’t just about seeing fancy cars, but rather about portraying the history of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan through the cars exhibited. Through the cars collected by King Abdullah to the current King, His Majesty King Abdullah II, you are taken through time from the 1920’s to present day.

My Review

As I said above, I enjoy both history and cars, but The Royal Automobile Museum surpassed my expectations. All of the cars have a descriptive placard that takes you through the details about that car and what it was used for in the Kingdom. The set-up of the museum is very well done and most definitely warrants a visit!
