About
Located in the restored ancient Citadel of Jerusalem at the entrance to the Old City, the Tower of David Museum tells the story of the city through history. The exhibition takes the visitor on a journey through 3000 years of history, using models, displays and multi media so that the timeline of the city comes to life. The museum stages temporary exhibitions which integrate the unique location and majesty of the ancient Citadel and its history with a contemporary presentation of artistic and historical issues. It hosts lectures and special musical, educational and cultural events. The 2 night shows, both the Night Spectacular and KING DAVID are world renowned and present Jerusalem's special character and beauty screened in lights, images and music on the ancient walls in the Citadel courtyard. Admission to the unique 360° view point over the old and new city of Jerusalem is 15 NIS only!

Popped in here to see the light show on Saturday to find out the museum was free that day until 16:30. It is basically open ruins of king herod’s Jerusalem palace and great views of the city, though some of the stairs were challenging for my 70 yr old mom. It was an unexpected pleasure to meander through the ruins with very few people there!

Skip the light show- it’s uninformative, and mildly artistic I guess, but not worth it in my opinion.

MY EXPERIENCE
“I visited this place” in the summer and did the full adventure of omega zip lines and walking on planks from 10 meters above ground- with the grandchildren. It was unbelievably fantastic, and I don’t need to do it again.

TIPS
From the entrance, keep turning right and going up the steps until you reach the windy flag draped top- for the best view of the entire Old City.

This museum hosts a variety of items between the old well maintained ruins of david's citadel. during our visit we saw 3 exhibitions- the kishle (which is a stunning old fortress with rich history) the bird view (many findings across the citadel) and the banai exhibition- about a talented family of performers in israel. we enjoyed our tour very much- adults and kids alike.

We spent a whole morning here and enjoyed reading about the different periods of history and viewing the great displays. We started with the free guided tour and then wandered around on our own after the tour.

The Tower of David imposes its presence when you enter the Jaffa Gate. Even when you don’t have time to go inside you should take some minutes to look at it and to think (or to inquire) about the role of David for the History of the city. Enjoy!
