The Jordan Archaeological Museum boasts an excellent collection of antiquities ranging from prehistoric times to the 15th century, including an exhibit of the Dead Sea Scrolls and four Iron Age anthropomorphic coffins.

In Graeco-Roman times, Amman was known as Philadelphia, it was named after the Roman emperor Philadelphus. Prior to that it was known as Rabbath-Ammon.

Amman consists of an old and more traditional part called the City Centre or Downtown (in Arabic 'Al-Balad'), and a modern more vibrant western style found in West Amman.
