The new Petra Museum, which was opened in 2018, was officially open in early 2019, completely free, and was open until 8:9 pm in the summer, which surprised us. The front door is opened to the left by a desk with instructions in three languages, Arabic, English and Japanese. A video on the right shows a brief history of the area, and visitors don't miss the most striking signage: the thanks of the Jordanian people to the Japanese for funding and design of the new museum. The exhibits are not only the local artifacts of Petra, but also many of them excavated in the surrounding towns, some of them just excavated in the past few years, and the life and development of the Nabati are explained in some detail.
The gate of Petra-the gate of the visitor center-I haven't photographed it. While walking while taking a photo with a mobile phone, the shaking photo was a bit blurred and could not be seen clearly, so I deleted it. After that, I didn’t seem to find a chance to shoot again~>_<~ After entering the gate, I arrived at a small circular square. I saw a variety of small souvenir shops on the front, and a large Visit Center was marked to the left. Visit Center To the left is the entrance to the museum. This museum is very small, basically composed of introductory plates on the walls and exhibits covered in glass, nothing else. However, it is still a good choice as a basic science to get a general understanding before entering. Seeing that there is a paper introduction manual, I want to pick it up. After searching for a long time, we found that there is no Chinese. We have to complain! After a round, we found that the Chinese version was placed in another relatively inconspicuous corner^_^||| Long. For a layman like me, it takes about 45 minutes to read a story and look at a look.
