Owner description: Located in the restored ancient Citadel of Jerusalem at the entrance to the Old City, the Tower of David Museum tells the full story of the city. The permanent exhibition takes the visitor on a journey through 300 years of history, using models, displays and multi media so that the complicated timeline of the city comes alive. In addition to being a museum of history, the Tower of David relates to both the present and the future. The museum stages temporary exhibitions which integrate the unique location and majesty of the ancient Citadel and its history with a contemporary presentation of artistic and historical issues. It hosts lectures and special events in music, dance and drama and educational activities and programs. The 2 night shows, both the Night Spectacular and KING DAVID are world renowned and present Jerusalem's special character and beauty screened in lights, images and music on the ancient walls in the Citadel courtyard.

It's an amazing experience, very good for history buffs. However, if you are there when they are doing their Light Show... go. I don't care what you are into, you will think this is cool.

The logistics of turning every wall into a stage and screen blows my mind. The choreography is incredible. And the show is pretty awesome too. Great for older kids (not toddlers).

We didn't see the museum but only the sound and light show which was great. A bit pricey and short but very good.

The displays of the history of Jerusalem are extremely well done, and the rooms are very atmospheric, being built into the medieval structure.

If you can, go here a night there is a concert. Get there earlier to see the museum and stay for the concert. It is stunning against night- take pictures.
