Located within an ancient citadel, The Museum of the Tower of David displays 4,000 years of Jerusalem's history. The museum inhabits several rooms in the ancient fortification dating back to the Hasmonean dynasty that were rebuilt and expanded over millennia. Move through the rooms successively, as they exhibit Jerusalem as it changed chronologically through different time periods and empires' reigns. Climb the tower's ramparts for views over the citadel and the Old City. At night you can attend the sound and light show that illuminates the walls in the courtyard outside.

We found it interesting because we're interested in history. It's nothing to do with any religion. You can visit during the day or you can go to some event that happens there (concerts, exhibitions, etc.)

I've been guiding there for 19 years. It's the best way to learn about the history of Jerusalem in a short time. The whole timeline falls into place there
Excellent and moving history show in an impressive historic place. Provides important perspective of the long history. Recommended to reserve tickets in advance.
