Places to Visit

Jordan Natural History Museum

Is one of two museums in the grounds of the vast Yamouk University.Both domestic and foreign visitors are welcome.The museum contains a range of stuffed animals, birds and insects, as well as rocks from the region, but very little is explained in English.It’s good for birders, with some beautiful bee-eaters and rollers on display.The museum is in the huge green hangar No 23.

Alia Supermarket

Self-caterers and would-be picnickers should head to the Alia Supermarket near the Omayed Hotel, which has a good selection of local produce, including the region’s justifiably famous olives.

Beit Arar

Was set up to host cultural events and is located in a superb old Damascene-style house.The rooms are set around a courtyard paved with volcanic black stones and there are manuscripts and photo displays of Arar, one of Jordan’s finest poets.
