Ethiopia doesn't have nice white beaches and paradise islands, our main tourism attractions are our historical sites and diverse cultures which should be promoted heavily. This is a much needed Museum.

I like the idea of 'traditional stone architecture of the Ethiopian highlands', but I think it could had been done better.
