Darat al-Funun

Lonely Planet review

On the hillside to the north of the downtown area, Darat al-Funun is a superb complex dedicated to placing contemporary art at the heart of Jordan’s cultural life. The main building features a small art gallery with works by Jordanian and other Arab artists, an art library, and workshops for Jordanian and visiting sculptors and painters. A schedule of upcoming exhibitions, lectures, films and public discussion forums is available on the website and in the Jordan Times newspaper.
