Royal Automobile Museum
A museum dedicated to royal cars might not an obvious sell to foreign visitors, but this excellently presented museum offers an interesting perspective on the development of modern Jordan
, even if you have little interest in getting behind the wheel. The late King Hussein was a dashing celebrity as well as something of a petrolhead, so his extensive private collection of the world's finest vintage motor vehicles is a fitting legacy. The collection includes armored vehicles, sexy sports cars, classic Rolls Royces and the king’s beloved motorcycles and rally cars. The display outside the entrance even has a nod to future horizons, as well as a tip to Jordan's current popularity as a film location, in showing off Matt Damon's Mars exploration vehicle from The Martian
movie, which was shot in Wadi Rum in 2014.
