Go at night for the light show

Go for the light show in addition to any day-time touring you do - and take a sweater, can be chilly at night. But well worth it - so beautiful

A great museum and a even greater tour. It was informative, giving us a nice overview of Jerusalem, geographically and historically. Michael was humorous and we were laughing during much of the tour. My only regret was that we visited on our last day in Jerusalem and missed the night light show.

There is a quarter pipe underneath the tower, if you go down the stairs from the entrance. Looks like a nice tower.

This was a fantastic museum and we really enjoyed it! This museum is not the palace of King David, it is a crusader castle and has lots of history. We were very impressed with the setup of historic events. They had their exhibitions about Israel's history separated by certain periods. Was very informative and I felt like I learned a... More
