What about a walk through the history on a dynamic and fun way? La Storia Museum located in Madaba , a few kilometers from Mount Nebo, is the largest museum in the city and one of the most popular in Jordan.

The most interesting part of this mosaic is that each visitor can write your name on one of the stones and stick it in the work .
