“Light show was great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We went to the citadel only at night to see the light show, which we really enjoyed. It shows the history of Jerusalem in a simple, colorful, but really impact full way projected to the walls of the citadel. Well done also combined with the music. We had our seats on the balcony which was perfect.

“Fascinating building, excellent museum.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

We started our trip to Jerusalem at the Tower of David Museum, and it was a perfect introduction. The Tower has been extensively excavated, and contains layer upon layer of fascinating history. We visited on a dull day, and nearly had the place to ourselves; I suspect it is not like this in the summer. The museum is spread round the extensive building in a series of rooms with first-rate explanations, which informed the rest of our trip. There was a reasonable cafe, so we could rest awhile to gather our thoughts and energy to complete the exploration. Very worthwhile.

“The Night Spectacular-Sound & Light Show at night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

This is the most amazing sound & light show ever created & is a MUST - NOT MISS. Even after touring all day, no matter how tired you are find the 45 minutes to go & see this amazingly, awesome Night Light Spectacular. The performance begins along the paths that lead to the main stage & continues with a 30 minute presentation. The light show is shown on the walls (outdoors) in the Citadel courtyard. DO NOT MISS THIS if you are in Jerusalem it is literally jaw-dropping and awe-filled. And FYI - no cameras are allowed.

“History of Jerusalem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you want to know all about the history of Jerusalem, visit this museum at the end of your tour in the Old City. Nice movie about the different periods and beautiful lookouts.

“interesting - short show”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

is a nice light & projection show highlighting some of historical moments of the city - a nice opportunity to cross through the Citadel which reveals a wonderful inside space.
