The Royal Society for Fine Arts established the Jordan National Gallery for Fine Arts at Jabal Al Weibdeh in Amman. A special wing for temporary exhibits was opened in 1984. The main aims of the Gallery are:

The patronage of contemporary art in Jordan, the Arab countries, and the developing world.
Exchange of exhibitions between the gallery and other museums and cultural organizations outside Jordan.
Organizing and participating in seminars, conferences, and symposia pertaining to art and culture within and outside Jordan.

Since its establishment, the Gallery has greatly expanded. Its collection, which started with around 50 works of art, amounts now to almost 2000, consisting of works by 520 artists from 43 Arab and Islamic countries, ranging from Brunei in the Pacific to Morocco on the Atlantic, and from Turkey and Iran on the Caspian Sea to Pakistan on the Indian Ocean. The Society has organized more than fifty exhibitions drawn from major sources in Europe and America, such as the Center Pompidou in Paris, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Geneva Museum of History and Art and the Harvard Semitic Museum, for display in Amman. Turkish museums, the Museum of Modern Art in Cairo, as well as other collections in the Arab World have sent special exhibitions on loan to the Jordan National Gallery.

From its own collection, the Royal Society of Fine Arts has sent major exhibitions abroad to France, Turkey, Poland, and Great Britain.
