Jordan's Museums Official Website

The Jordanian Museum of Traditional Costumes and Jewelry

It was established in 1974 on the eastern side of the Roman Theater in ʻAmman. The purpose of creating it was to gather Jordanian and Palestinian traditional heritage from all Jordan regions in order to protect and preserve it from disappearing, so that it is displayed for future generations, especially because it constitutes the national and folk identity that distinguishes the Jordanian citizen. In addition, these ornaments and costumes are associated with local cultures, customs, traditions, handicrafts, as well as popular mythology that weave a special story of Jordan civilization.
