Tower of David

The tower that became the symbol of Jerusalem – some say it is the only museum in the world that tells the history of Jerusalem from the days of King David until the establishment of the State of Israel. From atop the tower visitors overlook the Old City of Jerusalem and all of its quarters. To the West is the new city. The permanent exhibition features visual representations, such as holograms, three-dimensional models and media exhibits that illustrate events in the city’s long history, from the First and Second Temple periods until the Mandate period and the State of Israel. Each room in the citadel is dedicated to a different era. In addition, the museum presents changing exhibits and even environmental works of art (such as Dale Chihuly’s glass sculptures).   The Citadel courtyard, filled with archaeological finds, is a venue for concerts and various public events. In a covered hall an animated film about the history of the city somehow compresses 3000 years into 10 minutes.
