Natural History Museum

Museum in Addis Ababa

Unless you've a particular interest in Ethiopia's animals and birdlife, this is more a case of rainy day tourism. Go eye to eye with a bloated leopard – sometimes the stuffers just don’t know when to stop stuffing! – and other stuffed wildlife, but sadly there's neither Ethiopian wolf nor lion. Of most interest are the bird specimens – reportedly around 40% of the country's 862 species are represented here.
