On the edge of the old city is the first place I wanted to go to. The brilliant woman at the ticket office was very helpful and explained the renovation work that would affect part of my visit but was happy to pay and also get the audio device to play the commentary. You have to leave a physical deposit like a credit card or driving license etc for the loan. Once inside made for the roof to survey the area. Yes, the tower was scaffolded but the area looked like history still and you can only imagine who has stepped foot here. You are now part of that history. Great views all around and the inner area still transports you back in time. Now there is a restaurant here so tables were setup, which spoiled the look but not end of the world. Lots of places to walk, up and down and along walkways. Felt safe and good footing. Builders and a few places are taken over from the public. But still a good area to see. The Fabulous view of the Temple Mount and the Mount Of Olives area in the distance are a big highlight of the museum. Great pictures. Plus the city in the foreground.nnWalked around and you could visit some rooms and also walk to the Kishle lookout. Note you can continue to walk along the battlements and out of the museum. This area is open to the public. So remember to come back if you have the audio guide!nnStill great with renovating going on. Amazing feeling being here.

Excellent historical experience
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on August 11, 2022

This museum is one of the best historical experiences available in the area. Definitely worth the time and effort to go through. A little physically challenging in some spaces, and it is large, so takes a while to get through, but I always enjoy the effort and always learn something new each time.

Worth it but pricey

Entry to the Citadel (Tower of David) includes two audio tours around the open site but no museum. They are both reasonably informative, despite some thudderingly obvious statements. Highlights include the stunning panoramic view and aluminium models of the site through the ages (including a poignant representation of Golgotha at the time of the second temple). It’s also pretty atmospheric and when we went, delightfully quiet. I’m afraid I couldn’t get very excited about the various walls in the Kishle. It’s worth a visit early on to get your head around the origins of the city but paying the standard ticket price of £40 for 4 adults without the museum seems a bit steep, but that’s Jerusalem for you.
