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. 8,000 m2 (86,000 sq ft) 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. On standby are additional spaces with potential for development, such as the exhibit hall extension, a botanical garden annex and the special effects auditorium.

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.
