The tomb is inside a synagogue, which means that men and women are separated. Women cannot see the actual tomb because it's on the men's side. All women have access to is the sight of a beautiful menorah and a small space for prayer. There is no information on that specific site, but there is a tiny museum close by that has great videos and even live performances of musical Psalms.

King David's Tomb - a piece of biblical history
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on August 28, 2017

Everything in Jerusalem is worth visiting but King David's tomb speaks to those who are interested in biblical or scholarly history.
