This museum is a nice complement to the actual Atapuerca working excavation site that I visited 15 miles away. The earliest European humanoid was found there and research is ongoing at the museum with what they excavate every summer. Great exhibits and interpretative displays.

If you are at all interested in evolution, this is an excellent place to visit. Start on the bottom floor and work upwards to travel through thousands of years of human evolution. The MHE exhibits many of the findings from the nearby Atapuerca archaeological site....More

Not what I expected. All a bit second division. Not even sure why it's even in this town. Seems like a desperate try to make the town more tourist friendly. Not worth the visit unless you get in free.

We had some coffee next door and stepped into the museum and browsed for about and hour. It’s compact and very accessible for all ages. I recently read Sapiens so my mind has been on topic in recent months.

This modern museum is very extensive and goes deep into the analysis of humanity, running back millions of years. The amount of detail provided is so great that it’s best visited with a guide or someone very prepared on the topic.

Highlight of the city, it’s just so well-organized and orderly. Very interesting, the guides are friendly and knowledgeable. Plus we got free tickets for some reason, that was lovely. Thanks so much!

One of the best museums out there. If you are in the area, make it a point to come here (even travel a bit to Burgos to get here!)
