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 Dead Sea. As you wine through the museum from set to set, the wonderful narration and full size bronze statues of people brings the experience to life. DON'T MISS THIS, it is really well done and impressive.
