Martyr’s Memorial stands testament to Jordan’s history and honors its soldiers who fought and gave their lives in the pursuit of peace. The centennial anniversary of the Great Arab Revolt proved a timely occasion to pay tribute to Jordan’s brave, selfless soldiers with a fitting redesign.The museum experience is centered around the idea of ascension. The visitor walks up a spiraling ramp that takes them through a journey of Jordan's military history and sacrifice, beginning in 1916 — the year Sharif Hussein bin Ali officially initiated the Great Arab Revolt.
Video loops instantly engage the visitor with imagery and sound to draw them in and set the tone for what’s to come. A wall map towers over a soldier’s tomb exhibits the places where Jordanian soldiers had given their lives to bring about and maintain peace around the world.
The journey continues with an integrated experience of exhibitions and installations, print materials, photographs, personal letters, and military artifacts and relics. An interactive display also gives visitors the ability to filter through a comprehensive directory of Jordan's martyrs.
