The new Petra Museum was completed in 2018 and officially opened at the beginning of 2019. It is completely free, and it is open until 8 or 9 in the evening, which surprised us. After entering the gate, there is a service desk on the left. There are instructions in three languages: Arabic, English and Japanese. A video is shown on the right, explaining the local history. Visitors will not miss the most eye-catching sign, that is, the people of Jordan thank the Japanese people for funding and designing the new museum. The exhibits in the museum are not limited to the local cultural relics of Petra. Many of the cultural relics were unearthed in surrounding towns. Some cultural relics were just excavated a few years ago. The life and development of the Nabataeans are explained in 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, you will arrive at a small circular square, and you will see a variety of small souvenir shops. A little bit to the left is marked with a large Visit Center. 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^_^||| It doesn’t take long to browse the entire museum roughly. For a layman like me, it takes about 45 minutes to read a story and look at a look.
