Most people make the trek up the mountain to the top of Masada. We were pressed for time so we visited the museum instead. This gave us time to go to the Dead Sea also in the same day. Many of the artifacts found on the top of Masada are in the museum. Here you get the story and history of Masada combined with an interactive experince to show what life on Masada in biblical times must have been like. I was particularly touched by a lock of hair and the shards used to identify the order of the suicides to escape the Roman conquerors. I highly recommend the museum.
