This little museum is in the corner of the Amphitheater area and is rich with cultural items of various Jordan tribes. Highly recommend if you have half hour to spare.

Thought some areas could be well illuminated but overall very nice and unforgettable experience.

The museum was closed for maintenance ; it is small but presents different aspects of Jordanian life. The ticket for the Roman Amphitheater is also valid for this museum.

The Jordan Folklore Museum is an awesome cultural trip into the Arabian and Jordanian culture and lifestyle. It has sections dedicated to each facet of Jordanian life - household, work, markets, professions, farming, housing etc. You can see the typical clothing, jewellery, ornaments, utensils, arms, tools and household articles that Jordanians used and use in their day to day lives. It definitely is worth a visit; it's located right next to the Roman amphitheatre.

While you are at Roman Amphitheater take your time to visit also the Jordan Folklore Museum – there is no need to pay, the admission fee is included in the ticket for the Amphitheater.
It is not a big museum, but you may see some interesting items as costumes, ornaments, day by day objects, traditional daggers and a gallery with nice mosaics. All these may give you an idea about the culture of the people from the area.
Have in mind that taking pictures in this museum is allowed which is not the case for the Jordanian Museum of Popular Tradition situated just opposite to this one – some previous reviewers just don't know what they saw.
