This is probably my all-time favourite museum, and my list is long (including Smithsonian(s), Louvre, Quai d'Orsay and the Orangerie of old, Prado, Mexico City...). Well, maybe the Louvre is at the top, but Burgos' Museum of Human Evolution would be just after that. Ça vaut la visite !

This is the best anthropological museum I have ever visited (and I worked at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC!)

Yes. I built an extra day in Burgos into my calendar so that I could spend more time at this museum. Even when it is not free admission day, it is worth spending a few hours here. There will be many grand churches to see along the camino, but not another great anthropology museum like this one.

And, even when it's not free, seniors get a reduced price, regardless of where you come from. AND be sure and ask for the sello - it's a good one!
