  • We went for the evening light show on the history of Jerusalem which was done very well. We did not get a chance to see the rest of the Museum. There was a full house but we were able to get in and out with minimal issues. There was a nice breeze for the evening show.
  • This is a very informative and scenic way to begin your journey into Jerusalem's Old City. Not only can you tour through ancient ruins - some of which date all the way back to the 11th century BCE! - but you can also learn more about why Jerusalem has played such a major role in world history. If you have the good fortune of doing a night show here, go for it! It's something that you truly have to see to believe.
