The museum is relatively small and the exhibits are ok. Labels in English could use lots of improvement. It is worth paying a guide to explain the displays. This visit requires no more than one hour max to see everything.

An amazing exhibition, really grasping and awful to see what Ethiopia has been through. Very educational and interesting!

Interesting period of history. Large photos, needs a little more background, but it's a good museum, given that it's a free, donation-based museum.

The “Derg Time” ( as many Ethiopians referred to the years under communism) is important
To recognize and remember. not only for Ethiopians but for all citizens of the world. This museum
Is great education tool as well as a memorial. If they had turned lights on it would have been even better.
