Could be so much more. There are good views of the old city, but the displays are thin and uninformative. There are few real historical artifacts, and some imaginative recreations that shed little light on Jerusalem's complex and fascinating history.

Very interesting visit, great views from the lookouts and a very knowledgeable guide who really made the visit. Not suitable for people who have a problem with steps or strong sun

The Tower of David museum offers a night time light show which is a spectacular travel back in time. I absolutely love it and I highly recommend it. The tower and City walls look amazing when lighted at night. So beautiful.

What an amazing way to spend an evening:) The sound and light show at The King David citadel is spectacular. The history of the Citadle is shown in soul rending music, sound and color . This is an experience not to be missed. The show is only 40 minutes. Bring a warm top as at night it is breezy.The price... More

When the Romans defeated the Jews early in the 1st century, they left the towers to show how mighty they are. Now, like all those who sought to destroy the Jews, Israel and the Jewish people live and the Romans are cast off in history.

This site helped me understand the various temples and times in history. Has an ok light show in the PM if you wish to buy a ticket. Great history and exhibits as well as views from high points along the walk. Look down into a moat of the castle and imagine yourself back in time. A photographer was there the... More
