The highlight of the show was Lucy, the oldest human skeleton found to date (3 million years old), which was displayed in a revolving showcase.

Inside a cave was a monolithic church of King Lalibela.

In the latter, the history of these ancestors was depicted on glass paintings.

This "church" consisted of a Tabot altar and in it incense was diffused to give the impression of a Timkat ceremony.
