We were on at this site for the history of Jerusulem light show, but it was fantastic. We were there the end of April and the first of May so the weather was perfect. The show, for lack of a better word, is projected onto the walls of the Citadel itself and goes through the different groups that have been in control of the Holy City throughout history. We had a group of 20 and everyone loved it. A couple of suggestions. Enjoy the walk in. Take your time and look for the projections in some of the small rooms off of the path. If you can go up on the balconey. There is a staircase that leads up there when you are almost to the end. You'll see another spot earlier that looks like it goes there, but is chained. Trust me don't take that one.
You can find a video of this on the Tower of David Museum website that will give you an idea what it looks like, but it doesn't do it justice. Highly recommended for any trip to Jerusulem.

As a seventy-year old I found the place physically demanding but the effort was truly worthwhile. The models and layout diagrams realy help to make sense of the experience on the ground. The panorama from the tower is another great way of getting properly orientated.

The exhibits here walk you through Jerusalem's history era by era, which will help you better appreciate all of the different cultural quarters in the city when you explore Old City later. The towers also allow for an uninhibited view of the city (old and new) from above--great spot for pictures! An audio tour is available (we chose not to use this) but not necessary to enjoy this museum. No real artifacts beyond the excavation of the walls--just a lot of replicas.

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.

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.
