Petit Futé's opinion on JIMMA MUSEUM
In three successive rooms, the museum presents the Oromo kingdom founded by King Abba Jifar and the history of his reign from 1830 to 1855. There are Oromo costumes and musical instruments, weapons and books, and local handicrafts, including the famous seats carved from a single piece of wood. Among the possessions of the Oromo rulers, the throne of the last king Abba Jifar is one of the major pieces in the collection. This king was also the first to convert to Islam following the Gondar Abdul Hakim trader in 1830.
