Ras Tafari's House
Sherif Harar City Museum
Arthur Rimbaud Center
Near the middle of the walled city, and often mistakenly called Rimbaud’s House, is this museum dedicated to the poet Arthur Rimbaud...
At the end of Mekina Girgir you’ll stumble upon the arcades of the Gidir Magala, the main market (previously known as the Muslim market)...
On Feres Magala, this is a good place to mull over a cheap coffee, Coke or beer from your front-porch bar stool and watch life rush by.
Ras Tafari's House information
Lonely Planet review
Within pouncing distance of Rimbaud’s House is the conspicuous Ras Tafari’s House. The house was built by an Indian trader and many of its features, such as the Ganesh carving above the door, are Eastern in origin. Haile Selassie spent his honeymoon here: hence the house bears his pre-coronation name. It’s now the home of the Sherif Harar City Museum . The museum houses a private collection of weaponry, coins, jewellery, household tools and cultural dress. The owner will probably offer to show you his book-restoration workshop upstairs.
