Museo de la Evolucion Humana, Burgos

(4.3/5 based on 1,100+ 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.

  • Firstly Museum a person is it thinks; "rooms and more rooms" with "things and more things". The Museum of the evolution of Burgos you not tired: large modern, interesting. It is not a museum only bones, but the evolution of the world. Just as it sounds.

  • The visit to this museum should be complementary to the sites of Atapuerca. I would even say better first deposits and then the Museum. The site is magnificent and should go step by step to savor it. At the end you das account that the essential focuses on floors 0 and 1. However it is worth.

  • Decorated as an ambulatory Social Security. Not serviced by staff. At the exorbitant price include service and breathtaking views, but you only get the latest. The previous dealership was very better, but at least you could gather around round tables and lengthen a coffee until the sandwich. Now, even that!

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • They don't have lot of things and it is poorly explained. I wouldn't recommend go there, it is better to go directly to atapuerca
  • merece la pena visitar. todo muy interesante. meencanto
  • 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.
