The American Center of Research and the University of Jordan opened the university’s renewed National Heritage Museum, located on the campus in Amman, with a ceremony held on Wednesday, June 8, 2022. Some 100 people attended this celebration of the museum’s recent renovation, which focused on bringing it up to date with current developments in museology. The museum’s emphasis on preserving, protecting, and visually presenting Jordan’s heritage received particular attention.
