The Museum can be found in a military complex in the Sports City of Amman. Although the entrance is free, to gain access you will have to deal with the sentry, in a forward gate. And it can be an unpleasant experience.
However all the efforts will be rewarded with a small but interesting collection, covering the military history of the kingdom, roughly between the Arab Revolt of 1916 and nowadays. The early times are specially well represented, with plenty of objects evoking Lawrence of Arabia's times.
It's highly advisable that you ask some one local to write detailed instructions in a paper so you can present it to a taxi driver. Not easy to get there alone.
Opening hours: From Saturday to Thursday, 9 to 16.
Open all year: Yes
