Overlooking the heart of Amman, Darat al Funun is housed in three traditional buildings of the 1920s, alongside the archaeological remains of a six century Byzantine church built over a Roman Temple, all restored for use. 
With its Arts, Architecture, Archaeology, Darat al Funun speaks of an enduring ancient legacy of urbanism, architecture and cultural identity that is now being enriched by a modern flowering of the visual arts.
While the thrust of its programs maintains a constant focus on the visual arts, the Darat al Funun strives to be a haven for all the arts, where the public may experience the visual arts in harmony with other forms of self-expression.
