Unbelievable Evening Light Show
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on August 13, 2017

We've been to the Tower of David museum before, and it is great and a well worthwhile visit. Now they have an evening light show covering in one hour 2,000 years of the history of Jerusalem. Technically stunning (I still cannot figure out where the projectors are located) and totally captivating. We (a family...

An absolute must!

The museum is intelligently curated - blending the original artefacts of the citadel into the exhibition (see the Muslim prayer hall exhibit for an example) and creating works (like the bas relief) that blends original, ancient styles and motifs to fill a gap in the story.

The museum is intelligently curated - blending the original artefacts of the citadel into the exhibition (see the Muslim prayer hall exhibit for an example) and creating works (like the bas relief) that blends original, ancient styles and motifs to fill a gap in the story. Weaving in and out of the citadel, the museum is housed in little rooms, each of which is rich in detail and yet economical in display. Use the audio guide - it adds a lot to the experience. I would suggest seeing it after spending a day in the old city so the information can be better contextualised. A wonderful experience!

This show is great. It shows the history of Jerusalem. I was there wth two 11 years old girls and they enjoyed a lot. So did I.

Spectacular!

This review is of great importance to me because it is here that we celebrated my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. The Tower of David is a uniquely beautiful and historic landmark. Each night, a lazer- light show presentation is accompanied by music to tell the story of Israel. The show is compelling and entertaining. It is a great for adults and children alike. In addition, this location is also the perfect back-drop for beautiful family and/or Bat Mitzvah photos. Furthermore, the acoustics inside the Tower are amazing. To listen to a child read and chant Torah verses during a religious ceremony is nothing short of emotional and overwhelming. The Tower of David is an extraordinarily magnificent site to visit and enjoy.

Museum That Gives Great Perspective on Jerusalem
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on August 9, 2017

This is essentially an Ottoman fortress that has a long long history to the earliest days of Jerusalem. Proceeding through the different exhibits will enlighten one to the histories that have shaped Jerusalem. Especially worthwhile are the relief maps that are scattered around the fortress, providing on the ground texture to the Jerusalem landscape....

Especially worthwhile are the relief maps that are scattered around the fortress, providing on the ground texture to the Jerusalem landscape. Don't miss the spectacular views from the ramparts (you'll have to climb a little). This museum should definitely be one of your first stops when visiting Jerusalem. BTW, senior residents of Israel receive a favorable ticket discount.
