An informative look at one of Israel’s best-known destinations.

The ancient Masada fortress is one of Israel’s most popular attractions, combining history with a beautiful view of the desert. The museum features artifacts, theatrical presentations, informative audio presentations, and other elements in order to bring the story of Masada to life. Located at the cable car station, it is a great place to learn more about the historic plateau. The museum takes you back in time, to learn Masada’s beginnings, its dramatic fall, and its excavation lead by Professor Yigael Yadin. A highlight of the museum is a recreated rebel dwelling, featuring straw baskets, looms, sandals, clothing, cooking utensils, and clay pots.
