The Madaba Regional Archaeological Museum (MRAM) will be a state-of-the-art regional archaeological museum that employs best practices to preserve and display artifacts from Madaba and sites in the area bounded by southern Amman, the Dead Sea, the Wadi Mujib, and the eastern desert. These artifacts come from all periods represented in the region—from pre-history through the Bronze and Iron Ages to Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Islamic periods, as well as modern times (see Timeline HERE). A museum like this one will become a destination for the display and protection of Jordan’s considerable cultural heritage, organized around narrative themes native to the region. To be enduring, endearing, and sustainable, the museum must derive and grow from local roots, and to this end the museum is being conceptualized, designed, and planned in direct engagement with stakeholders in the Madaba region.
