In 2007 a new museum opened in the visitors center of Masada , presenting many of the special artifacts found at the site by the Expedition of Yigael Yadin, who excavated most of masada in the 1960’s.

The display combines finds from these excavations, and a theatrically designed backdrop with explanations that visitors can also hear through a headset, while through exploring different spaces.
