The Museum of Human Evolution of Burgos exhibits the findings of the Sierra de Atapuerca excavation site. It is also a research senter and conveys the scientific interpretations of the findings and the theories drawn from them.
Within a spectacular and symbolic architecture, the MEH aims at explaining important issues about our past, present and future as species. The museum offers a holistic vision of human presence on the Earth and the new theories about human evolution.
The MEH has a visiting center in UNESCO world heritage site Atapuerca; el Centro de Arqueología Experimental. Outside this fascinating building, 700 trees will be planted in a Scream from Nature. The firs years, the trees – called majuelos in Spanish – will be covered with protective tubes. When the tubes can be removed, a time laps camera will document the growth and seasonal changes of the trees.
