In the Tower of David Museum you will not only experience captivating exhibitions, you will also deepen your knowledge of Jerusalem. The complex where the museum is located is in the Jaffa Gate of the Old City: its walls of almost 500 years old belong to the Turkish citadel; its name comes from a tower so gigantic that the first inhabitants of Jerusalem attributed to the great King David (ironically its builder was actually the King Herod, whose fame was much worse).
You can start the visit with a splendid view of the old and the new Jerusalem from the top of the tower. Then admire the exhibits, videos and computer graphics that come together to illustrate the intricacies of a unique city in the chronicles of human history.
Each of these rooms have been renovated to show a different period of many tumultuous events that have taken place over 4,000 years. The different displays offer views of modern Jerusalem, and while you walk through the museum you can see the central courtyard of the citadel, where archaeologists have found remains from the time of the Maccabees to the Middle Ages.
The museum also utilizes its unique multimedia exhibition created by leading designers and artists from Israel and from around the world.
