Night Spectacular Sound & Light Show

Night Spectacular Sound & Light Show

|45 minutes
Watch the walls of the Citadel become the stage for a nighttime show celebrating Jerusalem's 4,000-year-old history through sights and sounds.

Amidst the archaeological remains in the Citadel's courtyard and to the sound of original music, virtual reality images tell the stories of King David, the Roman conquest, Muhammad, the Crusaders, and Suleiman the Magnificent, among other people and periods.

Night Spectacular Sound & Light Show

The Night Spectacular, a 45-minute show, uses trompe l'oeil technology---the stones of the walls and structures fade into the scenes and the screened images envelop the viewers, whisking them off to a one-of-a-kind multi-sensory experience.

Innovative techniques and a sophisticated computer system operate 20 projectors, 10 video players, 14 computers and 14 loudspeakers.

The Night Spectacular is the first of its kind and is for everyone---tourists, families, speakers of all languages and for all who love Jerusalem.


The show takes place outdoors in the Citadel courtyard so it is best to dress warmly.

With minimal wording---other than a few biblical verses---this show is suitable for speakers of all languages.

Dates are subject to change. Please check the Tower of David website for current showings.

    Great museum in an accessible location. The observation deck is breathtaking. Take an audio guide and press #4 when you get up there. You can easily spend a couple hours there, but can go through much of it in 45 minute...

    We went for the evening light show on the history of Jerusalem which was done very well. We did not get a chance to see the rest of the Museum. There was a full house but we were able to get in and out with minimal issu...

    This is a very informative and scenic way to begin your journey into Jerusalem's Old City. Not only can you tour through ancient ruins - some of which date all the way back to the 11th century BCE! - but you can also lear...

    I booked tickets for the night show which was amazing, around 30mins it was good fun, although it was cold so come prepared. Earlier in the day I went around the museum, but note most of it is closed at the moment.
