Ethnography Museum

See the imperial bedroom and a variety of tribal heritage at Ethnological Museum, a former imperial palace of Haile Sellassie detailing the tradition of Ethiopian nations. More than 80 language groups are represented in an impressive collection of artifacts, well laid-out and detailed in period settings. Tour the collection, considered one of the best in Africa, and deepen your understanding of the country’s layered history. Eastern Orthodox saints painted on wood, elaborate censers, illuminated medieval books, cowry shell jewelry, woodwork statues and carved stones, folk instruments, and exquisite neck rests to show the full complexity of the traditional life and culture of Ethiopia.
