4.3/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web
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.

  • We were staying at a hotel nearby so decided to go have a look. It was interesting enough, but was glad we got the free admission. There is a lot to see.

  • I visited during the free entry on Wednesday evenings from 7pm until the museum closes at 8pm. The hour was just enough time to dash around the key exhibits, but you could easily spend a few hours here, especially if you had children with you. The museum exists to display the finds from the nearby archaeological sites, and although impressive are limited in number. Therefore the majority of the museum is given over the explaining human evolution. The vast majority of the exhibits and displays have the information displayed in English.
  • The tour to the UNESCO World Heritage excavation site of Atapuerca 15 km to the SE leaves from here. There the earliest and most abundant evidence of humankind in Europe was found in a sealed caves. The finds are displayed in the museum which is expensive but interesting and worth it.
  • Beautiful Place with interesting exhibitions to see. Burgos is an incredible place. I'd recommend to go.
  • It's very interesting. It's worth it to spend time on it.
  • Great museum to understand the human evolution with plenty of visual support.
