Museum at Masada

Several months ago a new museum opened at the foot of Masada. I won't repeat the details about the museum that you can read in the Haaretz, JPost, and goisrael articles, but I'll just add a personal comment from my recent visit: I found the displays to be beautifully presented, mentally stimulating, and historically accurate. Entrance requires a handheld audio guide, which costs about 20 NIS ($5), and no photos are allowed. The audio guide is more of a gimmick, as the text of the audio (and much more) is written on the displays. Overall, I recommend a visit to the museum, especially to those who are making a second visit to the site.

UPDATE (8/10): The Jerusalem Post has just posted a lengthy article about the museum.
