EXHIBIT: The Pavilion is divided into three distinct galleries. In the first, visitors will enter through the magnificent city gates of Harar and wander its charming streets in Ancient City: Harar Jugol. Important buildings such as the oldest mosque in Africa and the home of French poet Arthur Rimbaud are on display. Visitors will get a sense of the vibrancy and liveliness of this ancient but still thriving city.  The Story of Coffee is told under a large Ethiopian-style umbrella, which also demonstrates the importance of this crop to the Ethiopian economy. At the far end of the street is the final exhibition gallery, Eight World Heritage Sites which proudly display the eight Ethiopian locations that are designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. A replica of Lucy, the oldest humanoid skeleton yet discovered that was unearthed in Ethiopia, acknowledges the status of Ethiopia as one of the cradles of human development.
