This is one of the most important historical places in Addis, but the way it is maintained it very depressing. You will see the most important historical documents, artefacts etc but everything is kept in a very sad way. I hope they renovate it ASAP.

A lot of people talk Ethiopia and Haile Selassie I come to mind. Menelik was a great emperor know as one of the unifiers of ethiopia and should not go unnoticed. Apparently he built this palace himself even though he had an army that could have done it for him. He was such a genius. Although this place is real old it should be visited.

We visited the palace during our trip to Entoto Marayam Church. It was interesting to see the reversion he took from European architecture to a more basic structure. Easy to add onto the trip to the church

Not far from the city you can escape the hustel and bustle of Addis and visit Menelik's Palace which is still intact. Also there is a small museum of Royal Attire.

The museum on site was interesting with charming English speaking guide. The guide in Palace area did not speak any English but a local translated for me. Seems to be falling apart despite recent refurbishment but definitely worth a visit when on Entoto
