The museum fills in some things that you may question up on Masada. This is a nice museum but you could miss it if you are in a hurry and think that the visitors center and the mountain are all that is here.

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!
