Those are beautiful photos, and there's nearly 20 of them! Now I remember why I love Petra. One of the pictures has a little view of the museum's exterior, it looks like a fun design. The museum is supposed to be one-of-a-kind in Jordan. I wish Queen Rania could've brought her kids along but I suppose they're in school.

Looking at the photos it reminded me of a children's museum here called Eureka! I wonder if maybe it was their inspiration.

Child's play for Queen Rania as she visits kids' museum in Jordan

Queen Rania of Jordan was every bit as enthusiastic as the 150 children who joined her on a visit to the kingdom's first interactive children's museum on Wednesday. Wearing a plastic apron, she picked up a paintbrush to create her own colour and name it, in an activity aimed at encouraging creativity and imagination. HELLO

Children's Museum

Opened to the public in May of this year, the Children's Museum was initiated by Queen Rania to complement the reforms taking place within the formal educational system that are meant to accelerate change in the quality and range of educational opportunities in Jordan.

Located within the Al-Hussein National Park on a 20,000 square meters plot of land, the museum is a place where learning is brought to life. It was conceived and designed specifically for children fourteen years old and under to encourage curiosity, creativity, discovery and self-expression.

By providing an interactive learning experience that builds on classroom learning, the museum will provide Jordanian children with a greater appreciation of their national identity by exposing them to the diverse elements of the Jordanian environment. Through one hundred and fifty hands-on exhibits, it will encourage exploration and understanding of the culture, sciences, technology, and industry, through innovative and educational multi-media resources and programs.

The facilities within the Children's Museum include an exhibit hall, a multi-purpose hall, a children's library and IT center, an activity room, an outdoor exhibit area, an outdoor theatre, a museum shop, a birthday room, a caf and a planetarium.
