One of the museums that deserves to seen. Free entry. Brochures are available. Souvenirs near by. Not suitable for elderly or wheelchairs. The building itself is beautiful, historical, and wonderful with its small staircases, halls,building stones and the big numbers of rooms. A lot of information about SALT Town and Jordan in general. A must seen museum. Most attractions in Salt are walking distance.

To be honest the expositions, unless you are really into ethnology, will not blow you away.
However the building is beautiful, the views over the old town great, and it is free. You will invest some time and understand a bit better the history and relative importance of As-Salt

One of the most popular places in Al-Salt. A small heritage museum full of cultural information about the city.
A fantastic view from the outdoor terrace overlooking the old city of Al-Salt.
The whole visit takes between 30 mints to 1 hour.
There’s no place to park your car, and the area is so crowded.

Historic Old Salt Museum Built for the Abu Jaber family between 1896 and 1905 by the architect Abdel Rahman al Aqrouq, the Abu Jaber House is the finest heritage building in As-Salt, and one of the most significant architectural icons of Jordan. Since 2010 it houses the Historic Old Salt Museum which recounts the history of the city in its Golden Age, between the end of the 19th century and the 1930s

Free entrance to the museum, they hand out pamphlets and cds with different information about the city.
The museum is the house of Abu Jaber (a merchant / trader) built in 1887 which they turned into a museum in 2010.

Highly recommended, worth the visit, you have to start from the basement and take reset and breath As-salt air in the balcony at the last floor, historical place talking about As-salt.

Loved the museum of Abu Jaber. It was the magnificent house of the famous Marchant "Abu Jaber".
Very big, lots of stairs though has a comfortable lift in case you need it.

Very interesting, you learn a lot about the history of Salt City. Like this: According to a British person, Salt City had about 50% Christians in the end of the 19th century.
