Great museum with wonderful audio. Rooms portraying the different stages of Masada's history, filled with fascinating artifacts...especially the shards with names written on them...possibly the real ones used to decide who would be the last one alive? Don't miss this!

The museum had many archaeological exhibits. While interesting, they were not unique. But truly fascinating were such exhibits as the battle tactics of the Roman legions used to finally win and the diet at the time. I'm surprised so few people bother to visit. They're...More

You need to take a cable car to the top of the mountain to view the Masada fortress remains. While you are there, don't miss the museum. Grab a head set and begin your journey back in time in the areas of Masada and the...More

Great piece of this region history so you must go there and visit the place. Best way is to go up the hill if you some more time. It takes about 30-50 minutes depends on conditions. Great views from heaven.

The place is amazing, lots of history, great view, must see place, the bad thing is that handicaps cant actually come here if they have a wheel chair, I think this must be fixed if the place says it gives easy access to them...

Much to see. Much to learn. Much to understand. Take a tour, or get a book and read up before you go to truly understand and appreciate. Advice: take a hat, and bottle of water, wear comfortable walking shoes.

Before hiking or taking the sky tram up to the top of Masada, take time to visit the museum. You will understand everything up there better if you do. The museum has lots to offer in terms of history and perspective, as well as genuine...More

This well done museum gives one a fantastic trip into one of the most amazing episodes of the ancient Israel's national past. Very well designed and arranged and serves as a great introduction to climbing up to the Masada fortress.
