Museum

Museum in Addis Alem

Next to St Maryam Church, this museum displays some surprising finds for such a nondescript regional town: crowns and clothing belonging to Menelik and Haile Selassie, as well as relics from the Battle of Adwa and a gold inlaid box that local legend says once contained the Ark of the Covenant. The site sits atop a rocky hill 600m south of the main road.
