I found the first two floors the most interesting - informative explanations of the discoveries in the World Heritage Site of nearby Atapuerca and the development of human evolution. Information on first two floors in both Spanish and English...English translations seemed to disappear on the upper floors for most of the exhibits.
Nice explanation about the origin of the homo sapiens. Based on excavations not to far from Burgos. A must! But the higher the floor the less interesting!
The architecture alone lends such a wonderful contrast the the old city of Burgos. The exhibit design was very well done - it dealt with a lot of information while not loosing the visual & interactive components.
I've been here twice and would come again- fascinating but frankly I'd go through the bottom bit quickly as the top floors are most interesting and informative-specially liked the display about the human brain- good to combine with a visit to Atapuerca or after reading Sapiens!
Highly interactive, good staging, excellent displays, and good translation in multiple languages. If there is anything to criticize, the place is overwhelming. If you only have an hour, don't go, this is a three plus hour place. A bit pushy on some popular theories but that's how you get funding in the science biz.
I was looking forward to this visit with my 8 year old son but was left with a feeling that it could have been so much better. The vast new building is mostly empty. A huge foyer area leads to an impressive display of local archaeology, If this is what you want to see you won't be disappointed. The human... 更多
We visited this as it sounded quite interesting and we were very cold! We struggled to find the entrance as the huge modern building could do with a few signs. Once inside we were advised to avoid the school trips so decided to go backwards, starting at the top. All the displays were in English and Spanish as were the... 更多
Get an evolutionary trip into the past. They use all kinds of new technology to transport you into the past. 5 floors of information and you will not be disappointed. Free for pilgrims.
I took a break from walking the Camino de Santiago and decided to give this Museum a go. The day before I had walked by village of Atapuerca and the archaeological site (saw it from the Camino trail) where fossils of the earliest human beings in Europe were found. This museum has tremendous backing from the UNESCO Patrimony of Humanity... 更多
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.
