    On the edge of the old city is the first place I wanted to go to. The brilliant woman at the ticket office was very helpful and explained the renovation work that would affect part of my visit but was happy to pay and also get the audio device to play the commentary. You have to leave a physical deposit like a credit card or driving license etc for the loan. Once inside made for the roof to survey the area. Yes, the tower was scaffolded but the area looked like history still and you can only imagine who has stepped foot here. You are now part of that history. Great views all around and the inner area still transports you back in time. Now there is a restaurant here so tables were setup, which spoiled the look but not end of the world. Lots of places to walk, up and down and along walkways. Felt safe and good footing. Builders and a few places are taken over from the public. But still a good area to see. The Fabulous view of the Temple Mount and the Mount Of Olives area in the distance are a big highlight of the museum. Great pictures. Plus the city in the foreground.

    Walked around and you could visit some rooms and also walk to the Kishle lookout. Note you can continue to walk along the battlements and out of the museum. This area is open to the public. So remember to come back if you have the audio guide!

    Still great with renovating going on. Amazing feeling being here.

    The 360 degree, panoramic views from the tower are amazing and so unique. No other views like it! Great for friends or family. If you go down one flight of stair from the elevator, you can look at the cool bells in the tower!

    Well worth it - helps put the Western Wall and the Temple in context, great view of the surrounding area and of the city generally, and with a very peaceful and striking aura.
    Highly recommended
