Attraction details
Reviewed 21 September 2013

This is a modern, sleek museum with excellent displays an signage. There are discounts for seniors and teachers. I did not rent the audio-guide, but spent 2 1/2 hours in the museum. Don't try to attempt a visit in less than two hours. It is a beautiful building . The gift shops (there are two) have lots of books and things children would enjoy.

We enjoyed the whole museum from beginning to end. In the early 90s The archaeologists discovered a new humanoid called Homo Antecessor at Atapuerca. This has proved that our ancestors populated Europe much earlier than was previously thought. All the exhibits are well done - some with holograms. There are very lifelike models of the most emblematic of early man. Also good representations of cave art. Every thing is well labelled in Spanish and in English. Two things disappointed us! The only refreshments available were from machines and in the book shop we only found one book in English and we had that one in our hotel room. All in all a really good experience.

Amazing to see what has been dug up nearby and how it links into evolution. It is all set out in a very clear way which is easy for an English person to follow.

This museum is just amazing, full of information presented in a modern, didactic and fun way. This museum is a must for any person who wants to learn about our species and it's evolution, by itself enough justification to visit Spain!

visited this museum on a rainy day in burgos!
really enjoyed it, and admission (usually €6.00) was free on wednesday afts.
the museum was well laid out and easy to negotiate. it wasn't busy either which made our visit rather relaxed.
there are v. good exhibits and lots of info. to take in, after a while (like all museums) its too much.
but overall highly recommended.
