"NATIONAL MUSEUM" Top 5 Page for this destination Museum Tip by DAO
Museum, Addis Ababa: 18 reviews and 40 photos
What the National Museum lacks in size, it makes up with great displays. Relics from Stone Age man all the way through modern day are on display. Some of the more interesting exhibits are coronation thrones of the Emperors, tribal exhibits with clothes & weapons, art, musical instruments and hand made animal-skin Bibles written in Geez. They are able to even display more than 200 styles of cross found across the country. There are some exhibits related to several Emperors that tell the story of Ethiopia. Their most prized display is of our ancient ancestor LUCY. There is also a disturbing set of displays related to the starvation and Communist persecution. A must visit here in Addis.
It is open from 0830-1230 and 1330-1730. Please note it has a dual pricing policy (local/foreigner).
Directions: Han St / Siddist Kilo crossroads, just north of St Mary's Church. Near Addis Ababa University.
