National Museum of EthiopiaThe National Museum of Ethiopia in Addis Ababa offers a comprehensive overview of the country's natural, political and art histories. Visitors can easily spend an full morning or afternoon here soaking in the "edu-tainment." A cast of the bones of the Australopithecus afarensis Lucy are here of course, but so is the throne of Emperor Haile Selassie, traditional tools and textiles, and displays about Ethiopia's different tribes. It's worth it to engage one of the Museum's guides on a tour. Their services are free, but tips are appreciated.
