The Zoological National History Museum (ZNHM)

The zoological National History Museum at Addis Ababa University (AAU) houses the wildlife attractions of Ethiopia. The faunal collections at the ZNHM-AAU range from tiny invertebrates (corals, echinoderms mollusks, arachnids, insects) to robust vertebrates (fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals).

Among these collections are included Ethiopian endemics such as the Mountain Nyala, Gelada Baboon, Walia Ibex and a lot more.

The specimens are preserved in the form of full or head mounts, horns, skulls, skins and within liquid chemicals.

As the collections are housed under a roof visiting the ZNHM-AAU would mean experiencing Ethiopian wildlife at a glimpse.

The Museum's suitable location at the central part of Addis Ababa, Arat kilo area makes it easy for local and foreign visitors to access. It is also a good opportunity for researchers to study the collections and use them for reference purposes.
