Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Castile and Leon / Province of Burgos / Burgos / Museo de la Evolucion Humana
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.

A very well done display to inform and educate about the Atapuerca discoveries and its place in the understanding of human evolution. more »
Me encantó el auditorio . Instalaciones estupendas, lugar muy recomendable. No me dio tiempo a ver el Museo pero las instalaciones por fuera son espectaculares y muy modernas. Fui a ver el espectáculo... more »I loved the auditorium. Great facilities, highly recommended place. I didn't have time to see the Museum but the facilities on the outside are spectacular and very modern. I went to see the show Forever (Michael Jackson) and the sound was very good. Very comfortable. Recommended completely.
Very interesting museum! It's quite large so I would advise to take your time. The museum has a nice mix between information boards (in English and Spanish) and exciting movies, animations and virtual reality. The collection is showcased in chronological order which lead you through the whole museum. Overall an historical experience!
This museum is a very enjoyable visit. Great exhibits, well organized and easy to navigate. Discounts for pilgrims. Storage lockers available for €1 that you’ll get back at the end of your visit
