It may seem odd to be celebrating the quarter centenary of a citadel that has stood for thousands of years, but the Tower of David Museum is doing just that.

This year marks 25 years since the ancient complex opened to the public to educate and delight people from across the globe in the vibrant history of the city it once helped defend. The anniversary will be marked by exhibitions, artifacts and special events throughout the week of Passover, including a reduced entrance fee of NIS 25.
