If you are not expecting much then you won't be disappointed. There is nothing spectacular about this museum. Visit only if you wished to kill time. There are much better museums.

the best place to see the the pre-history and ethnography of the country, even if the museum is distinctly dated - so worth seeing. Other things to see there also, but not everythings merits close attention - depending on your interests of course. So you need a less than two hours I would say

Spent a very pleasant couple of hours in the museum, as part of a tour with Ethiopian Discovery Tours. Started with a trip to a superb espresso bar (the oldest in Addis Ababa?) before the museum. The museum was large, with well presented exhibits and explanations, for both the archaeological exhibits and the early Ethiopian technology. .

This museum could be so much better. I also think it's disingenuous that they're not honest about the "Lucy" skeleton (FYI, it's fake). A lot of people come to see that but no one will tell you the real one is not accessible to the public. It's a shame, this museum could be great but most items are covered in dust and not preserved well.
