“2 IN 1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

The Tower of David museum in Jerusalem, Israel, is a compound in which you meet a combination of easy-to-understand exhibition of the, at least, 4000 years of history of this unique city and an open-air art museum, with glass works of Chihuly hidden at random corners of the garden, among other objects. The building itself is an example of changes during the passage of centuries and it is used at night as the setting for an outstanding audio-visual experience called The Night Spectacular show. A must for those visiting Jerusalem.

“Experience the museum during the day and the light and sound show at night.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

I loved walking around the citadel. The museum is well worth the time to visit, and make sure you go at night to see and hear the light and sound show that portrays the history of the city of Jersulem. A fantastic show.

“background, not objects”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The views are beautiful and the museum is a helpful (if somewhat political) survey of the history of Jerusalem. But there are almost no original objects in the museum, except for the building itself.

“Very interesting”

It did a great job of telling about the history and religions of the area. It was a very well laid out place.

“Don't Miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

(actual date Nov 2011 - but this was not available above)
Brilliant museum, wonderful views. Allow a good 4 hours. If it is on, book for the "Night Spectacular" before you travel to Israel.
