“A great surprise”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

I visited today the Tower of david Museum and participated in some of the activities the museum offers for children during summer vacation; there were all sorts of activities including a very wise children-oriented theatrical piece. I enjoyed this visit.

“Really impressive sound and light show; unexpectedly good”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We didn't know what to expect at this, as I have been ti 'sound and light extravaganzas' before which have been lame. This was brilliant, documenting Jerusalem through the ages through historical myths like the Creation and historical real things like the destruction of the Temples etc. my only criticism really is that some seats, like ours, did not have as good a view as higher up ones.

“another wow”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

I never knew about this until a friend told me. It is actually the light show, not shoe :). that being said, light show does not describe it, it is an amazing show projected onto the walls of the outside sitting area at night. It is only about 45 minutes, book your tickets in advance, well worth going to see before or after going out for a bite. You can walk to the Jewish quarter when you are done and get a bite to eat.

“Disappointed in night show”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The show was beautiful but disappointing. First of all it was only a half hour not 45 minutes as advertised. The venue was beautiful but the displays needed to presentation needed better narration for those who are not as familiar with the history or chronology.

“The light and sound show was disappointing”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

I had hoped for something moving, but there really wasn't much to it. Simply a light show. Technically impressive, though.
