“Lots to see. But how much is original?”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

It was fun to walk up and down into all the nooks and crannies.

It provides a good walkthrough the history of Jerusalem. Good views from the top of the building.

The exhibition was a little old fashioned, with very little interactivity.

And it looks like it's been heavily restored. They are very coy about the dates of different parts of the building.

Visited the Tower of David museum There is a small entrance fee but it's well worth it Much bigger than it looks from the outside there are different levels with some wonderful pan aramid views from one of the towers There are several 'museum' areas all set out beautifully and very interesting and informative. Would definitely recommend a viewing

“David's tower museum and light show”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

Wow! Don't miss the Light Show. It happens a couple times during the week. It lasts about an hour; worth the money. You can buy a joint ticket for the museum and the later show. The museum tells the story of the city of Jerusalem and is most interesting. Lots of picture ops. Walking within the grounds is as interesting as the exhibits and light show. It is situated next to the Mamila Mall and the Arab Market. There are various restaurants; it can be a whole day's enjoyment.. Or more.

I love history, so to see all the levels of different cultures deep in the ground is interesting. The view from the tower is also beautiful. In the evening there is a great light and sound show.

“amazing light show”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Just came for the light show, and glad i did... Jerusalem history projected on the insdie walls
(with a bit of a 3D feel to it) under the open night sky, and accompanied with wonderful music.
A bit short but very impressive.
