Located within an ancient citadel, Tower of David Museum displays 4,000 years of Jerusalem's history. The museum inhabits several rooms in the ancient fortification dating back to the Hasmonean dynasty that were rebuilt and expanded over millennia. Move through the rooms successively, as they exhibit Jerusalem as it changed chronologically through different time periods and empires' reigns. Climb the tower's ramparts for views over the citadel and the Old City. At night you can attend the sound and light show that illuminates the walls in the courtyard outside.

  • An almost common house holds the remains of King David, in a coffin of features little adjusted to the importance of remains that saves. A guide who offered me in the place I xigio that will pay u$ s 100.-for a tour inside of 5 minutes, the place responsible for not knows about this. It was a gentle old man at the beginning and viloento when you didn't want to pay what I asked. An annoyance

  • Great museum on the history of Jerusalem. As you progress through the citadel you move forward through time. Great sweeping views from the top of the tower as well. Go for the double ticket for the daytime museum and the night spectacular. It's worth it.
  • Watched the light show recently.... It was simply breathtaking to see the history of this Holy City projected on the massive stone walls of the Citadel... Definitely a great experiance.....
  • Really cool and enjoyable museum. It also has a great view of the Old City. I would come back multiple times, because I love it!
  • Amazing atmosphere, great food and stores!
  • You can see here a very special presentation about Jerusalem's history. Try and get tickets in advance. Great show.
