The climb is hard although you can drive it but it’s so worth it! The view, the church and the museum are beautiful. This mountain/hill was a true wonder of the world and is something I will never forget, especially since I’m trying to forget...More

Beautiful church atop a hill in Addis Ababa. You can’t go in, but there is a small museum with ceremonial dress, religious artifacts, etc. You cannot use video or photography in the museum.

It is worth making the effort just to see the wide expanse of concrete that is Addis. The buildings are ok, and probably needs a guide to explain more (we didnt have one).

When I was there the museum was open - worth a look. But the palace was closed. Overall, not really worth the visit.
