Museo Torre de David

El Museo
La Torre de David – Museo de la historia de Jerusalén se encuentra en la fortaleza medieval conocida por el nombre “La Torre de David”, próxima a la Puerta de Jaffa, entrada histórica a la ciudad antigua de Jerusalén.

El Museo presenta la saga de Jerusalén centrándose en los principales sucesos de su historia, desde los primeros testimonios de su existencia en el segundo milenio antes de la era cristiana, hasta el momento en que Jerusalén se convirtió en la capital del Estado de Israel, destacando su importancia para las tres culturas monoteístas.
La exhibición permanente presenta la historia de la ciudad a lo largo de un eje cronológico, utilizando medios visuales diversos y explicaciones en tres idiomas: hebreo, árabe e inglés.
La fortaleza es en sí misma un apasionante sitio arqueológico. Los hallazgos en el mismo representan las diferentes épocas de Jerusalén y son un fiel testimonio del pasado convulsionado de la ciudad.
Desde las torres de la fortaleza se aprecia un maravilloso panorama de 360 grados de la ciudad de Jerusalén.

En el lugar se presenta un espectáculo nocturno único en el mundo.


El establecimiento de este museo fue posible gracias al patrocinio de la Sra. Vivien Clore Duffield y la Fundación Clore Israel, por medio de la ‘Jerusalem Foundation’.
