Ethiopia, a country of cultural and natural wealth, has no museum that fulfills the standard of a modern museum. National Museum of Ethiopia in Addis Ababa at Amest Kilo and Institute of Ethiopian Studies (IES) of Addis Ababa University at Sedst Kilo are the only museums with good collections, commendable management and outstanding education roles. For a country with huge cultural heritages, these museums are far less than what is expected. There is a serious shortage of reference material for art, history, biological and geological science teaching and research in schools, colleges and universities of Ethiopia. Students in most instances learn about their country’s art, history and culture and as well as faunal, floral and geological resources exclusively from text books and lectures. Researchers do not also find relevant and stuffiest reference material for their research. The proposed Bahir Dar University Museum, therefore, is expected to enhance knowledge of our environments and cultures, inspiring stewardship of our collective past, present, and future. It would strive to explore thousands of years of human history and millions of years of natural history. The museum would serve the university, national, local, and regional community by providing educational opportunities that inspire curiosity, ig the different parties and professionals involved.
