- The Neolithic limestone statues of Ain Ghazal, which are linked to advances in pro-technology.
- A copy of the Mesha Stele or Moabite Stone, proudly erected by the Moabite King Mesha in 850 BC to celebrate his numerous victories over the Israelites.
- Four rare Iron-Age anthropomorphic sarcophagi of striking cocoon-like design, which give an insight into ancient burial practices.
