The Tower of David Citadel

大卫塔 - 耶路撒冷历史博物馆

耶路撒冷历史中的大卫塔博物馆,坐落在被称为‘大卫塔’的中世纪堡垒。堡垒地点靠近雅法大门 – 也是进入历史悠久老城的大门。

博物馆的常设展览在随着时间的推移,各种途径说明了城市的历史,并解译为三种语言:希伯莱语、阿拉伯语和英语。堡垒本身就是一个非常迷人的考古遗迹。堡垒的遗迹证明了城市过去的多事之秋,并在小规模时间范围的介绍中,讲解了耶路撒冷的历史。 从堡垒的塔楼上可以观察到耶路撒冷老城及新城的360度的壮丽景点。


博物馆的建立和其内部的继续运作归功于Vivien Duffield圣母院和耶路撒冷基金会的以色列Clore组织。
