Visiting Jerusalem set aside time in the evening for the History of Israel light show. In 45minutes experience from before Abraham thru today, portrayed ~120degrees on the inner courtyard of the Tower of David Museum. The walk way to the outdoor seating is wide enough for wheelchairs. This high quality production is captivating and well worth the 55 Shekels ($15.50). Arrive 30-45min.in advance as there is no reserved seating. I recommend purchasing or reserving in advance. When you go on line you can see the number of remaining tickets. *If you go this year, take in the free outdoor 50th Celebration of Israel just across the street, before or after the museum.

Good museum.

Great historical sight that you must visit when in Jerusalem. Very informative with lots to see. Maybe not good if you are physically impaired.

Great Views but a dated, sub-par, and skippable Museum

The tower of David Museum presents one of the best views possible of the old city as well as many parts of the new city. This alone makes the citadel worth the visit.

The tower of David Museum presents one of the best views possible of the old city as well as many parts of the new city. This alone makes the citadel worth the visit. Additionally, the site is built over and around fascinating archaeological remains from numerous periods which demonstrate the sheer breadth of time in which Jerusalem has been an occupied settlement. That said, the museum itself was poor. There were no artifacts only facsimile displays. Furthermore, the panels were limited and did not provide too much information about the history of the city which couldn't be gleaned from any guide book. Additionally, much of the earlier exhibition was based on Biblical verse rather than proven archaeological fact and peddled the biblical story even when it contradicts what has been empirically proven through archaeology.

The Tower of David is magnificent! I loved the audio guide and the map of the museum – it was all very organised! Views from the rooftop of the Phasael Tower – which is the highest place of the Tower of David are absolutely spectacular! The museum itself describes the history of Jerusalem (including the Tower of David) throughout almost four thousand years, starting with the Canaanite period through First temple, Second temple, Roman & Byzantine period, Crusades, Mamluk and Ottoman empire, British Mandate until the 1967 war. There was a lot to take it, but it was all very interesting.

Museum is excellent and view from the top is treasured

The museum itself is an excellent account of various periods in history and the view from the top is a great panorama over Jerusalem. The night show was okay but could be missed if you don't have the time.
