Museo de la Evolucion Humana, Burgos

4.3
#1 of 8 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.

  • Highlight in a great city. One of the best archaeological museum of the world. Very well organized and distributed. 100% recommended.  more »
  • A pleasant surprise. The architecture is very beautiful and the Museum is comfortable and didactic. You should visit this place without a doubt. The content is great but the concept of the Museum is no more.

  • Absolutely amazing museum. Wonderful interactive displays. Sure to inspire future archeologists and biologists. Spanish and English explanations.
  • Wonderful museum and kids will love it, too! The museum has a "treasure map" for children to find special items displayed in the exhibition, and the map also encourages them to really think about human history.
  • Great museum, very educational and not too large. Learnt a lot about the archaeological digs and the amazing finds near Burgos. Beautiful building, too. Very well laid out exhibition with lots of English explanations.
  • Very interesting place ! You can learn a lot of information of human, another planet and our evolution, also there are rooms where you can watch small films ( on Spanish )
  • Very interesting and fun museum if you want to expand your knowledge about our ancestors.
