It hosts lectures and special musical, educational and cultural events. 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.

This was a great experience and quite recommended- it was hard work but worth it.

My family brought me here to do the activities- I had never done anything like that before in my 67 years… there is always a first time, and the grandchildren were eager to see me be a full participant, which I was. Please see and find “helpful” all my photos that I took of others doing the exact same thing that we did.

In addition to that exciting experience is the impressive and worthwhile exhibits in the amazing historical structure from the Middle Ages, built on the foundations of King Herod’s palace of 2000 years ago- the tour and exhibits are impressive and recommended- we did that.

And also- the famous sound and light goes at night- we did that too- and we recommended that too.

An overall good historical educational experience- you do it by entering by crossing the drawbridge over the moat.

This museum hosts a variety of items between the old well maintained ruins of david's citadel. during our visit we saw 3 exhibitions- the kishle (which is a stunning old fortress with rich history) the bird view (many findings across the citadel) and the banai exhibition- about a talented family of performers in israel. we enjoyed our tour very much- adults and kids alike.

We spent a whole morning here and enjoyed reading about the different periods of history and viewing the great displays. We started with the free guided tour and then wandered around on our own after the tour.

The Tower of David imposes its presence when you enter the Jaffa Gate. Even when you don’t have time to go inside you should take some minutes to look at it and to think (or to inquire) about the role of David for the History of the city. Enjoy!

We were part a tour and having a guide gives more depth to the experience. So much history. The place is well maintained and even if you have no interest in history the views are amazing for the top of the tower.
