The Children's Museum Jordan (Arabic: متحف الاطفال - الأردن) is a children's museum in Amman, Jordan. It is part of Al Hussein Public Parks.

The museum was launched by Queen Rania Al Abdullah in 2007. It is a member of the Association of Children's Museums and Hands On! International. With an area of 8,000 m2 (86,000 sq ft), the facility includes 180 interactive indoor and outdoor exhibits, and educational facilities, such as an art studio, a library, a multipurpose hall, an outdoor theater, Tinker Lab and Secret Garden, a restaurant with an adjunct party room and a gift shop.

In 2012, the Mobile Museum was launched, targeting children and families living all around Jordan, with the aim of extending the Children's Museum's learning experiences to more children across the kingdom.
