360 Degree Interactive View of Jerusalem

Scroll down and enjoy the magnificent interactive 360 degree views of Jerusalem – the Old City and the New City!

When you come to the Tower of David Jerusalem Museum, you can walk up the ancient staircases that lead you up to the top of the Phasael Tower, built by King Herod 2000 years ago. From this vantage point you have the most spectacular views of all of Jerusalem. The panorama includes the expanding urban metropolis in the west and the domes, spires and stones of the most sacred sites to much of the Western world in the east. The stones that were part of the walls of the Jewish Temple Mount thousands of years ago, the domes of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Dome of the Rock, the Hurva Synagogue, the Tifferet Israel synagogue, and the Al Aqsa Mosque, and the expanse of the Mount of Olives with the oldest Jewish cemetery in the world, Mount Scopus and the spires and the minarets of the Old City.

Unfortunately, this magnificent view is not wheelchair accessible because it has not been possible to install an elevator without causing harm to the ancient stones.

Now you can enjoy this view from your home as well!

This digital interactive view of Jerusalem was created with the generosity of Mimi and Elie Douer, São Paolo, Brazil through Keren Hayesod.

The 360-degree view point is unfortunately not wheel-chair accessible. We have created an interactive VR experience and mobile device panorama experience for anyone who would like to explore the panorama from the middle levels of the Museum. If you wish to have the VR experience – please let the Museum know 24 hours in advance – if not the experience is available from all mobile devices at all times.
