  • One of the sites more spectacular that there are in Israel, combines history and religion. The charm of the desert its peace and solemnity, contrasts with the wild climate. It was much of my in this extraordinary place, I have the hope of revisiting.

  • Interesting exhibits, good flow, the story is in the details and minutia. As in any other Museum in the need to activate the imagination and at least a little bit in advance to read the history of the site, and even better museum visit after visiting the fortress, which of course take a guide or audio guide. If you do not know the history of many of the exhibits in the Museum won't say anything about yourself.

  • Very nice museum, with introductory video, art, etc. Great brief stop before climbing up to Masada itself
