The museum is currently housed in a small facility with limited space that has been expanded multiple times and is increasingly becoming difficult to maintain.

Size: 230,000 square feet (21,300 square meters)
Floors: 4 floors
Completion date: 2013

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.
