The complex of museums, restaurants, and observation deck high above the Dead Sea is worth a visit for its panoramic views alone. The overwhelming view over the Dead Sea reaches as far as the Judah Mountains on the Israeli side. That it may completely disappear by desiccation before 2050, is a subject addressed by the permanent exhibition of the Dead Sea Museum. Next to a superb introduction to the history, geology and ecology of the lowest-lying lake in the world, it informs visitors about the necessary steps to preserve the Dead Sea (Will the Dead Sea Really Die?). Videos, models, and all kinds of rock samples (touching is permitted) make the connections comprehensible.
The Dead Sea Panoramic Complex is located about 10 km south of the big resorts and is accessible via the Dead Sea Highway (exit signs).
