It was a grey day in Burgos so ideal for a visit. There was one school party there, otherwise very quiet As over 65's it was free for us. Lots of interesting exhibits so spent just over an hour there.

Must see for anyone. In depth information on the human evolution, but therefor less suitable for children under 8 or so. Most panels are also in English which is a big plus and a example for other Spanish museums. Some more interactive parts would make it even more suitable for teenagers. Reasonably priced.

Interesting and well put-together museum. Could take an hour or several depending how long you want to spend in the exhibits. I was not in a huge reading mood and was there for about an hour and a half. Nice cafe/lounging area on the top floor.

Great museum but the"evolution" part seems a little bit forced and the displays have a little of an amusement park feeling. The actual archeological part in the ground level is top notch. Must visit.

Well thought out museum in a beautiful space. Some very interesting artifacts to see. Information in English and Spanish. We spent one hour there. Social distancing cues there and masks required. Not just a buff

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
