Come and discover the mysteries of human evolution

The Atapuerca hills, in the province of Burgos, are home to one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world. The fossils found there have revealed important information about the evolution of the human species, adding to our knowledge of the human presence on earth.

Who are we and where do we come from? A question as essential as this one can only be answered by studying historical evidence like that found in the Atapuerca hills, and which today are kept in the Museo de la Evolución Humana (in Spanish only) in Burgos, a centre created with the aim of becoming a landmark among museums and education, both nationally and internationally.

Both installations and exhibitions in the museum raise crucial issues related to our past, our present and our future as a species.

This is why the Museo de la Evolución Humana is not just a museum devoted to our ancestors, but also a place to reflect on the present of our species, homo sapiens, with abilities enabling us to change the world.
