The Tower of David Museum

The Tower of David Museum

The Tower of David Museum of the History of Jerusalem, located in the magnificently restored ancient citadel that guards the entrance to the Old City, is a modern and innovative museum offering a comprehensive introduction to Jerusalem’s fascinating and complex 4000 year long history.

For nearly 3,000 years, the citadel served as part of the city’s defense structures. Now the massive citadel walls, topped by the towers and turrets with their breathtaking panoramic views, enclose a living museum of Jerusalem’s rich history. The visitor crosses the drawbridge and enters the guardrooms, picturesque courtyards and turreted fortifications of this archaeological site for a fascinating tour of the colorful history of the city.

A variety of modern multi-media techniques and reconstructions recounts the city’s past in an exciting and accessible manner. It is an illustrative museum rather than a historical testimony and visitors progress along a time line of history to learn about the customs, events and people who have left their imprint on the city and on civilization.
In addition, the citadel itself is a fascinating archaeological site dating back 2700 years.
The Tower of David Museum offers a 14-minute animated film on the history of the city as well as a host of educational programs and tours for all ages that are run in English and other foreign languages.
