Masada Sound and Light Show

We arrived to the show in May and it was quite warm in the evening. Sitting is on a concrete benches.

The show starts with the story of the archaeological excavation of Masada. Then, the story of the fall of Masada is told in the form of a play accompanied with effects of light, sound, fire and smoke. The lighting on the mountain and the fortress is impressive. I am very fond of the light effects so it was pure fun for me. The children found it exciting and educating. An opportunity to learn the story of Masada while enjoying!

After the show we walked around the area (if you get there early enough you can do it before the show). There’s an exhibition of ancient war machines that were used to conquer Masada.

To summarize – highly recommended, especially with children.
Some practical information:
The show runs every Tuesday and Thursday at 9PM.
It is in Hebrew but you can rent a special headset for translation.
Access is from the west, via Arad, if you are coming from the Dead Sea, allow at least an hour to get there.

Verify the information on their Website  before arriving.
