The collection is decidedly uneven in the range of its coverage. There is a nice selection of pre-Axumite material from Yeha and other places, but little from Axum itself, or indeed from medieval Ethiopia. The extensive anthropology exhibit is currently being relocated, but this means that the original bones of Lucy are on display (usually you only see a cast). This provokes a strong emotional response, and is undoubtedly the high point of the musuem. Many of the other fossils are just casts. The ethnography and art galleries upstairs are much less interesting.
