Museum of Evolution Burgos

If you are at all interested in archaeology this museum is a must-see. 

Situated in the center of Burgos in a building created by Juan Navarro Baldeweg, it is a light-filled transparent cube that beckons visitors to come inside and learn about human evolution. 

If you are lucky you will catch the bus there to the dig site of Atapuerca, where the oldest human remains in Spain gave been found. 

I easily spent two hours here and would return in an instant. A great museum that is interactive as well as informative and fascinating. 

My few iPhone photos do not do it justice. I will post better photos from home. You can also Google it. Museu de la Evolucion Humana in Burgos. 

2013 Admission for pilgrims with a credential is 4 euros for the museum and 9 euros total if you would like the bus ride to Atapuerca. 

Please note they are closed on Monday and there is only one bus at 10:30 am on Sundays. The rest of the week there are several morning buses. 

Four fantastic floors.
