Roman Amphitheatre

This 2nd century Roman theatre has 6,000 seats and dates back to the period when Amman was known as Philadelphia. It is one of the most famous landmarks in Amman. The theatre is built into a hillside and in such a way as to keep the sun off the spectators. It was built when Antonius Pius was reigning. It is now used as a venue for cultural activities.

His Majesty King Abdullah II wanted this museum to be built to pay tribute to his father the late King Hussein’s life and his love for cars. A sure treat for car enthusiasts, this museum displays over 70 cars and motorbikes that were owned by King Hussein and is quite impressive. The museum gives you a glimpse into how much of a passion cars were for the late king and how they were a part of the Hashemite legacy.
