“Go and see one of their laser shows at night!”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

This site was not on our tour agenda, but our tour guide told us about it and we checked it out one night. Amazing outdoor laser show about the history of Israel. I HIGHLY recommend.

“Great for History buffs”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Easy to follow the story of Jerusalem, with lots of written information and graphics. The way the museum is set out in separate sections allows you to think and take a break, so that all the information doesn't become too overwhelming. Add to this mix the physical site to explore and this museum is a winner. Views from the tower are fantastic. Good coffee too. The temporary Design exhibition was fantastic - not sure when it finishes.

“Goes back a long way!”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

End of October turned out to be a good time to visit - comfortable temperature, no crowds and calm atmosphere. Either way, best to go without being in a rush so that you can reflect on the thousands of years of history. Exhibition spaces are well and clearly laid out.

“Expanded museum”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

This museum is much larger than it used to be. Provides a lot of charts and tables to help the visitor understand the history of Jerusalem. When you go outside, you have stunning views of ancient walls, and beautiful views of Jerusalem.

“Good museum but less interesting light show”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

My husband and I recently visited the museum and attended the light show. We thought that the museum was worthwhile. However, we did not particularly enjoy the light show. While the graphics were designed to impress, we found the story to be rather uninteresting. My husband loves history but did not like the presentation. I know that other contributors to this forum disagree, but I wanted to share a different viewpoint. This was my observation. At the end of the show, two people clapped. Although the theatre was filled to capacity, nobody else joined the applause.
