Background & Objectives
The Museum spreads across over 8000 m² of land and hosts more than 180 indoor and outdoor interactive exhibits and educational facilities, such as the Library, the Art Studio, the Invention Lab and the Secret Garden. The museum also runs year-round educational programs, events, and shows.
As part of its focus on Early Childhood Development, the museum features an area that is especially dedicated to interactive activities targeted at children aged five years and under. Through these activities, the museum hopes to meet some of the demand for opportunities to develop the cognitive and motor skills of pre-school children.
In order to make the museum's experience is accessible for those who are unable to make the trip to the museum in the Capital Governorate, the “Mobile Children's Museum” was designed to tour various governorates around the country and bring the museum’s educational experience to as many children as possible. It provides a number of discovery stations and interactive activities that resemble those offered by the museum in Amman, aiming to stimulate children’s curiosity and love of knowledge.
Since its opening, the museum has welcomed more than 2.5 million visitors.
“Today, I visited the Mobile Museum with my classmates, and we enjoyed many things. The most fascinating was the ‘Energy around Us’ station, where we learned about electricity and ways to rationlise it. I like this subject because I dream about becoming an electrical engineer when I grow up.”
