Museo de la Evolucion Humana, Burgos

4.3
#1 of 13 in Museums in Burgos
Museo de la Evolucion Humana focuses on human evolution in an apropos location, some 16 km (10 mi) from the Sierra de Atapuerca human fossil finds. The museum and grounds were designed by the architect Juan Navarro Baldeweg, and will be of interest in themselves. But inside you’ll find a recreation of the Sierra de Atapuerca mountain range, ultra-realistic reproductions of human ancestors, and the answers to your questions about the differences (or lack thereof) between us and our hunter-gatherer predecessors. You can even visit the sites of the fossil finds on a shuttle that leaves from the museum. Museo de la Evolucion Humana is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Burgos Edition.

  • Beautiful spaces for a single dedicated topic (the human evolution that takes its cue from the discoveries of the nearby archaeological park of Atapuerca) that is treated in a linear and sympathetic way. Too bad they are limited to English translations only.

  • It's well worth it!!! It is an essential visit that is superbly complemented by the visit to the nearby Atapuerca.

  • I really like this museum, it is better than many museums you find in cities more than twice the size. Really informative and interesting if you enjoy history of humans and how we've evolved. I also enjoyed how interactive this museum is, lots to read, play with, etc. The quality of the exhibit and pieces are top notch. I've been twice here and I will go again.
