 Established in 1993 Darat al Funun was conceived as a specialized art center, incorporating exhibition spaces, a research and video library, open workshops and studios, visiting artists residence and venues for the performing arts. By promoting Art and making it accessible to the public at large, Darat al Funun affirms its belief in the Art as an integral part of the national heritage and that its survival may best be secured by supporting artistic talents.

By restoring the buildings and the antiquities, Darat al Funun has also preserved the country's heritage and history from the times of the ancient city of Philadelphia to the building of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
