    What to Expect
    Visit: The Museum of the Tower of David, Jaffa Gate, Jerusalem 9114001 Israel

    The Tower of David is an historical museum which presents the story of Jerusalem using diverse illustrative techniques. The exhibit is located in the medieval guardrooms of Jerusalem’s citadel and stands at the entrance to the Old City.
    The exhibition presents the main events of the city’s history in chronological sequence, beginning with the first evidence of the existence of a city in the second millennium BCE and ending with Jerusalem becoming the capital of the State of Israel.
    Become immersed in the 3000 year history of Jerusalem and walk through the rooms of the ancient citadel on an exploration of Jerusalem’s past until modern day.
    From the heights of the towers of the Citadel one has a breathtaking 360 degree view of Jerusalem: the Old City and the New City, the Four Quarters, the new neighborhoods, the Mount of Olives, Mount Scopus, the Judean Desert and the Dead Sea in the distance.

    The museum presents the history of Jerusalem in a series of chronologically arranged exhibits. While it obviously has a Jewish-Israeli point of view, it is objective (to my mind) and respectful of other groups and traditions which have connections to Jerusalem.

    The view form the tower is one of the best in Jerusalem, the compund's history itself is fascinating! The museum's exhibitions themselves are interesting, but aren't first-rate.

    Yes, check the website TOD . org for tickets: The ancient City of David did not go as far west as the current "Tower of David."
