Discover the secrets of the Tower on tablet and ipad, explore the citadel smart-phone in hand!
The Tower of David Museum leads the museum world and archaeological heritage sites in Israel using technology to create a digital presence that enhances a visitors experience within the walls of the magnificently restored citadel. Jerusalem is layer upon layer of history – and no more strongly felt than walking through the pathways of the citadel as each step taken moves you several hundred years through the different time periods of Jerusalem’s history. The juxtaposition of the digital age with the ancient stones, creates a unique experience at the Tower of David.
As Israel’s leading museum in the use of digital devices, the TOD held the first Museum Hackathon in Israel where participants developed ideas and solutions to create innovative visitor experiences. The Hackathon, which brought technology and ancient stones together, has inspired innovative technology companies in Israel and abroad to expand their collaboration with the museum. The museum also held the first national conference on technology in museums which has sparked discussions about museums and heritage sites in the digital age.
