Museum, Addis Ababa: 18 reviews and 40 photos
This is probably the best museum in Ethiopia. It is housed within Haile Selassie's former palace and surrounded by the beautiful gardens of Addis Ababa University. It contains an amazing amount of exhibits and charts the history of Ethiopia. It also displays traditional life in various tribes from birth until death. The sheer amount of costumes, weapons, musical instruments and household items through history is staggering. It also contains Haile Selassie's bedroom and bathroom. There are even small exhibits on currency, modern art and politics. This is a must see here in Addis.
Unfortunately photography is strictly forbidden inside and they take your camera off you. Don?t even try it.
They have a small gift shop with English books and even postcards.
Directions: On the grounds of Addis Ababa Univeristy. Have your passport with you!
