The Royal Automobile Museum

Saeed Khayr, Jordan


See Website

This memorable museum traces the life of Jordan’s King Hussein, through his impressive automobile collection, providing a great overview of Jordan and the Hashemite dynasty. While there are cars that belonged to King Abdullah I, the country’s founder, and the present ruler, King Abdullah II, the bulk of the collection was amassed by King Hussein, who ruled Jordan for forty-six years until his death in 1999. Newsreel footage and photography are mixed in with displays of the actual vehicles and trace the development of car technology alongside important historical events such as the Arab Revolt and World War II. Closed on Tuesdays.
