Tower of David, Jerusalem, Israel
The Museum presents Jerusalem’s story, details the major events in its history beginning with the first evidence of a city in Jerusalem in the second millennium BCE, until the city became the capital of the State of Israel.
The permanent exhibition illustrates the city’s history along the axis of time using myriad methods and includes explanations in Hebrew, Arabic and English. The Citadel itself is a fascinating archaeological site.
The finds uncovered within are a testimony to Jerusalem’s eventful past and produce a representation of Jerusalem and its various historical periods in microcosm. The Citadel’s towers offer a 360-degree view of the Old City of Jerusalem as well as the city’s modern areas. In addition to being a museum of history, the Tower of David relates to both the past and the future. The Tower of David Museum is located near the Jaffa Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem in an ancient citade.
