Situated at the top of the Amman Citadel, the museum was built in 1951 to display the richness of archaeological sites from various artefacts discovered during excavations throughout Jordan. The museum was designed to rely on natural lighting (sunlight) through the windows on the top of the building and on electric lamps on the walls of the museum and above the cupboards so as not to shed light on the artefacts directly and damage them.
