Me and my wife bought the audio tour and the virtual tour of the tower of David museum. The virtual tour didn't work by the way. At all, I had to basically keep taking pictures of nothing until it allowed me to choose by hand...More

Very cool museum that lets you see the Tower and the history of Israel as well as the ability to get some great panoramic shots of Jerusalem from the upper parts of the Tower.

We started our tour after 3:00 P.M. perhaps a little later than normal. It is even possible the staff allows us to view after hours but we have found Israeli always willing to help accommodate visitors schedules. We had an Israeli friend who was versed...More

Jerusalem is overwhelming, and this place is the best introduction or summary to a visit in the city. The museum is spread over various spaces of different periods at an awe inspiring citadel, with the Crusader hall dedicated to temporary exhibitions, always special. The idea...More

Yes you can. The museum is on the main level and you can let the kids explore around the citadel while an adult is visiting the museum.
