This museum gives some insight into the culture of the Ethiopia but the exhibits are just average. Visit only if there is time.

I spent a couple of hours walking around and reading all the interesting history and stories about Ethiopia and the region around. Great place but I do hope they give it some more attention. Needs some renovation for sure.

The historical exhibits are great and so is the art work. Your visit to Addis Ababa is not complete unless you visit the museum.

Located inside of Addis Ababa University. The superb collections of Ethiopia's cultural, religious, traditional artifacts as well as Emperor Haile Selassie's preserved bathroom and bedroom, as a reminder that it was a former palace. Wish to see cataloguing the objects with date and location.

An interesting museum and well worth a visit. The museum provides information on different ethnic groups in Ethiopia as well as many historical artifacts. Unfortunately, many of the items displayed do not have descriptions in any language. Other items have descriptions only in Amharic. Despite these qualms, the museum is easy to recommend.

This is a very good museum to learn about the people of Ethiopia and see the former palace of Emperor Haile Selassie. The museum has some interesting historical artifacts and samples of Ethiopian artwork.

Former royal palace of Emperor Haile Selassie I with well preserved living areas. There is also a general overview of Ethiopian history and ways of life as well as an art gallery on the top floor. Small entrance fee but worth a visit to explore modern Ethiopian history and culture ..I thought this place was more interesting than the national museum.

This is one of the best museums in Addis, and the best for understanding variations in the peoples of Ethiopia. Allow three hours to do the museum justice.

If you have some time to spare during your stay in Addis, you shouldn't miss this museum, especially in conjunction with the National Museum. They both house interesting artifacts that tell the amazing story of Ethiopia. This museum shouldn't take longer than 2 hours to completely tour.
