Small but interesting
Sep. 2018 • Couples
We were let in and given a “tour” (in limited but sufficient English) even though they were officially closed. Stuffed local animals, pictures of extinct ones, ancient bones, including 1 1/2 million year old homo erectus, old examples of local culture (ornaments,
weapons, etc) all add up to an interesting but small Museum.

This is a great museum and to the best of my knowledge the only museum in Eritrea. This is definitely a must see has it has everything from fossils, historical artifacts, history and plenty of cool science exibihits.

The museum was good. I liked the items displayed. I was in hurry , could not spare much time. But it was good experience to see and compare the museum with our museum.

comment on review of National museum Asmara
Eritrea has just emerged from two wars, and has significant difficulties across a broad front. The national museum, the zoo, and other sources of culture and tourism are lacking. They should be viewed in the context of a newly born, very poor country. It is not fair to view them otherwise.

The national museum is in a beautiful building that that served as a catholic school for many years, and has been converted to a museum. The displays are not well-labeled or documented in english, as many of the brightest academic minds have left the country. The academics will return and will build this as a proper cultural center in the future.

A Forgetable Experience
The museum is a sad introduction to Eritrea. Upon entering, you encounter a quiet (surly?) attendant who has you sign in. The displays of cultural items are poorly labeled and not explained well. The archaeology artefacts are also badly displayed, and the exhibit of fauna of Eritrea is pathetic. Overall, this is such a depressing and confusing experience, it is better to avoid it than risk such deep disappointment. Those who run the place should be ashamed.
