Museo de la Evolucion Humana, Burgos

Natural History Museum Museum
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.

  • Impressive remains in this museum. If you would like learning about origin of humanity that's the place!
  • Loved this place, it was fascinating! A shame we did not have time to look around it all, but will definitely go back.
  • Not worth a visit. Technologically great, but awfully dull.
  • Beautiful museum in burgos. Very well explained how humans and the environment evolved during history. Screens, videos and other technology and gadgets are used to explain. Perfect place to bring your kids on a journey to our past.
  • I spent an hour here with the free entrance. The information is available in spanish and english.
