National Museum

The museum has a varied range of exhibits across three floors covering a wide scope of Ethiopian history. The most famous exhibit is the replica statue of Lucy, at 3.18 million years old, the oldest hominid skeleton ever found. The fragile original skeleton is in the vaults of the building. Also of interest is the selection of celebrated Ethiopian artworks from Aksum, Lalibella, and Tana Monasteries, plus relics from Haile Selassie's reign. Check ahead of time as to whether there is a power cut scheduled.
