Do you want to fly through the sky between the tower of King Herod and the Ottoman walls of the old city of Jerusalem?

In August of this year, the King David Museum in the old city of Jerusalem will open “Towers in the Air”, a climbing rope adventure. The experience includes seven stations, including ropes, ladders, omegas, climbing walls, and rappelling, all of which give visitors a unique experience of adventure sports amid breathtaking views of the city’s historic sites.

The experience also allows visitors to enjoy panoramic views of the old town as they climb the historic walls, allowing guests to see both the old and new cities, from the four quarters to the Mount of Olives to Scopus. Guests can experience Jerusalem’s 4,000-year history by exploring the ancient citadel in the air and getting their adrenaline pumping through exciting high ropes courses.

The rope adventure costs 100 NIS per person for children 9 years and older and 40 NIS per person for children between 4 and 6 years of age. The prices include admission to the museum.

The exhibition is ideal for families and allows children to learn about the history of the city, but is also guaranteed to be exciting.

“Towers in the Air” is just a special event of the museum and will only be open in August. The museum’s opening hours are Saturday-Thursday 10 am-7pm and Friday 10 am-3pm

The King David Museum is located in the tower of the David Citadel and serves as a bridge between the eastern and western parts of the city. The entrance is next to Jaffa Gate, the main entrance to the Old City. The Citadel is an important historical and archaeological site, and the museum shows different eras in the city’s history, from the Maccabees to the Middle Ages. The museum also has multi-sensory exhibits, including the annual Night Spectacular, a sound and light show that illuminates the citadel walls at night to tell the history of the city.

The museum was opened to the public in April 1989, partly with the support of the then mayor of Jerusalem, Teddy Kollek. Archaeological excavations took place on the site prior to the opening, including the renovation of many of the citadel’s rooms into museum rooms. Visitors have the opportunity to see history up to the time of the First Temple nearly 2,700 years ago, and follow the history of Jerusalem through the exhibits and walls that testify to the history of the city.

The permanent exhibition shows the history of the city through a variety of different interactive tools such as models, dioramas, and films, and includes explanations in Hebrew, Arabic, and English.
