Lonely Planet review for Museum
Before you finish exploring the ancient city, try to visit the small museum just to the northeast of (and uphill from) the Oval Plaza. It houses a small but worthwhile selection of artefacts from the site, such as mosaics, glass, gold jewellery and coins found in a tomb near Hadrian’s Arch. All items on display are well labelled in English, though no photography is allowed. Just as interesting as the exhibits are the inscriptions, tombs and pillars lying higgledy-piggledy in the gardens outside the museum.
