Wollega museum is the first uniquely structured ethnographic museum established in Ethiopia during the Dergue regime in 1978. Since its inauguration, it serves as the main heritage conservation center for the Southwest Ethiopian people. Currently, the museum holds more than 1500 collections of cultural materials, which categorizes it as an ethnography museum. But it also comprises some historical objects, which also makes the museum that of a general museum.
The museum has three exhibition halls, which lead to different parts of the museum. At the entrance, there are the remains of an Italian warplane, which were shot down at a place called Bakkee Boneya in east Nekemte town. The plane is a symbol of colonial resistance and still stands today.
Are you a history junky? This is the perfect place for you to observe all the archived historical artifacts!
