Jordan museum holds Le Mans display
Amman, July 27, 2010
The Royal Automobile Museum, home to a collection of cars and motorcycles owned by King Hussein of Jordan, recently held an exhibition of over 50 Le Mans posters since 1923.
The exhibition was made possible, thanks to the recent collaboration between the museum and the Le Mans Museum in France, as well as the French Cultural Centre. The Franco-Jordanian relationship is owed to the incessant efforts of Prince Hamzah Ibn al Hussein, a statement said.
The artwork brought in over 8000 visitors during the 24-day exhibition, the first of a series of events between both museums.
“We are delighted to be involved with the world’s most prestigious and challenging automotive sporting event, and place the museum’s name before thousands of classic car race enthusiasts” said Raja Gargour, the museum’s director.
“We are looking forward to continuing this association and bringing to Jordan a glimpse of Le Mans winning cars next year,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
