I have to admit, I was skeptical of the Tower of David Light Show - hoping it didn't turn the Old City into "Disney World". I was pleasantly surprised! Very well done - it is visually impressive and historical (as it tells the story of Jerusalem through visual imagery - one doesnt have to speak hebrew/arabic to understand). My jaw dropped repeatedly throughout the 45 minute show - It had the Disney quality experience, without the cheesy-ness. Very impressed & would see it again.

At the start they tell you that there are no real antiquities in the museum. There are actually a couple. There is a baptismal font from the Byzantine era. And there are pieces of two columns from the second temple. Those two things, and the view from David's Tower, make it worth going. The museum displays tell the story of Jerusalem from the beginning. There is an archaeological dig in the middle of the site - you can see rounded balls that were used during sieges.

I found the history of this site very interesting and informative. Plus, the views from the towers were excellent. However, the entry fee was pricey. The people working the day we visited we rather rude, but hoping that was an off day.

I loved exploring the Tower of David at the Jaffa Gate entrance to the Old City. You can see the changes in the architecture that corresponds to the control of Jerusalem in different time periods. The museum describes the history of Jerusalem and the site offers some steep climbing to great views.
