It is located within the archaeological site in the Acropolis of the ancient Gadara city. It was built in 1860. This building belongs to Al Rosan Family. It was called the House of Rosan (Bayt Ar Rūsān) to commemorate them. The building of the museum is made of a wide courtyard surrounded from all sides by rooms used for different purposes. This building itself is a unique cultural and touristic experience that takes the visitor back to the period when the museum was built and used. What distinguishes the museum is the famous quote of the poet Arabinos that is carved on his tombstone, “You who pass by, I was the same as you are now, and as I am now, you will be. Enjoy life because you are mortal”.
