The Petra Visitors' Center does not provide a lot of information, the staff are moderately helpful if you ask a direct question but don't seem to be very interested. The Visitors' Centre is across from the Petra Museum. There is also an ATM nearby, which can be a trifle hard to find.

Once entering Petra, there were only friendly people helping to get around with tickets (Jordan Pass), providing with map and some good tips. After the visit we realized we left a sunglasses box at the bench by the Siq entrance and the service at the Visitor center was so kind that arranged for us that someone went there to check is the missing box is still there and once found - brought it to us. Do not hesitate to ask for any assistance as people there are ready to help with many quiestions/needs.

What can one say about this or any visitor centre

Namely it needs to be efficient, helpful, informative, cheerful employees and not tied down in red tape

Firstly for me personally it was. I had my QR Jordan expert pass (80JD) on my iPhone. Passport wasn't needed

I didn't encounter too many employees but the desk and the actual ticket booth ones were pleasent enough

Beaurocratically it was a painless experience

There were many information boards about the major attractions which were helpful and interesting

I met a local taxi driver who's super helpful, Omar. Just ask for him as he waits at the JETT bus station or u can email me for me into

From the visitors centre we were guided through Petra by an amazing guide named Khaled Hasanat. He is extremely knowledgeable, and was super motivated to show us all the details in Petra

Furthermore has he also provided a lot of information for the rest of our trip, which was very helpful.

I would highly recommend Khaled to anyone who is looking for a guide in and/or near Petra.

The free Petra visitor center exhibit provides lots of information about Petra. The history of the people in the area, construction and some artifacts found there. When I visited the visitor center was open until 8 PM. If you do not have the time or energy or want to pay to visit the Petra Museum, Visit here.

Yes, it is true that this place is welcoming and friendly. Very much so. IMHO, it is not an attraction per se, especially in Petra. However, it is very handy in terms of preparing you for visiting Petra, e.g., to buy so clothes as we had to do because of rapidly inclined weather.

Take the time to orient yourself in this museum as it is not too large and expansive. Shows great history and is set out in a very modern way.

I bought a Dr. Hawass Hat for the walk Into Petra. Sure glad I did. They asked $ 20.00 we payed $ 10.00 ... just walk away and they say OK. If they ask $ 10.00 say $ 2.00. I really wanted the hat!
