The Ethnological Museum
I decided to go here after seeing the many positive reviews. While the information was good; I particularly enjoyed the section on the tribes, it was ruined by the poor quality of the displays. It is worth going to because there are interesting areas, but you do have to pay to enter, and I have seen better museums for free.

Re. The best museum in Addis Ababa
We had the same problem. Went again on my second trip to Ethiopia and it is all in the basement. There isn't any sign saying so though as you probably already know.

The best museum in Addis Ababa
The Ethnological Museum might be small in size but it more than makes up for it with the amount of stuff it has. They say that it's the best museum of its kind in Addis Ababa and I would agree with that. The only problem I encountered was that I couldn't find the Lucy Ethnological items I had read about.

Re. Sobering
Hello Shelly, I come from Ethiopia. I am glad you are interested, but please be aware that place can be a little one-sided. Other interesting history place is National Museum - 10 million years' worth of history there!

As we became aware years before travelling to this lovely east African country, Ethiopia's history has been troubled at times. It is important that visitors know of it though, which is why I view the Red Terror Martyrs Memorial Museum to be essential for all tourists to the capital city Addis Ababa.

As a woman that works alongside sufferers back home, a visit to the Beza Entoto Workshop was high on my agenda. Great souvenirs made by women already diagnosed with HIV. Quite upsetting at times but incredibly inspiring!
