The project’s main goal is to build a state-of-the-art Visitors Entrance Pavilion and Plaza at the Tower of David, the Museum of the History of Jerusalem, spurring a major upgrade and renewal program of this majestic ancient gateway.
The TOD Museum is located in the medieval citadel known as the Tower of David, near the Jaffa Gate entrance to the Old City. This institution presents Jerusalem’s monumental history, detailing major events from the first evidence of its existence in the second millennium BCE, until it became the capital of the State of Israel. Touring down the city’s timeline, visitors discover its significance to three major monotheistic religions.
- 12,400 SQM Total Area of the Museum
- 840 SQM Entrance Pavillion
- 600,000 Visitors Each Year
Welcome to Jerusalem
In addition to the Entrance Pavilion at the museum plaza, there will be a gallery for temporary exhibitions, a tourist information center, and spaces for the museum's educational activities to thrive in.
