Two new museums pay testament to Jordan's cultural sites and rich history.
The Museum of Jordan has now officially opened to the public, a year after the Museum at the Lowest Point on Earth opened in Safi.
Holidaymakers on city breaks to Amman can find the country's newest museum in its downtown area of Ras al-'Ayn.
Visitors can enjoy nine major permanent exhibitions, featuring themes such as food, environment architecture and religion.
Tourists will learn about Bedouin lifestyles, while getting the chance to sample traditional Jordanian clothing and translating names into Arabic.
Among the 2,000 artefacts the sacred, ancient Dead Sea Scrolls can also be found, featuring scriptures which are now part of the Hebrew Bible.
They can be savoured every Saturday to Monday inclusive, from 10am to 2pm.
The opening follows last year's launch of the Museum at the Lowest Point on Earth - found 1,329 feet (405 metres) below sea level at the Dead Sea's southern tip.
Exhibits include 4,500-year-old pottery, ancient tombstones and Bronze Age ceramics, which educate visitors on the area's inhabitants over the past millennia.
