Ethnological Museum, Addis Ababa

There's a nice ethnological museum in Ethiopia's capital of Addis Ababa, housed in the former palace of Emperor Halle Selassie. It's a grab bag of ethno-history, a peek at Selassie's private quarters in the palace, and art, both old and recent.

Plenty of cases filled with traditional dress and objects.

The private quarters are interesting, a closet-sized safe in his bedroom, and baby blue for the royal bathroom.

Paintings of the royal family are scattered around the museum, alongside clothes they wore.

More rooms, more relics.

Fair warning.
