In the section of Archaeology and Prehistory there are 8 rooms where are exposed parts from the Paleolithic to the Visigoths, highlighting the prehistoric human remains of Atapuerca with fossils of Homo Ancestor. In addition we found funerary objects from the Iron Age, remains of the Roman city of Clunia, remains of late roman necropolis and paleochristian sarcophagi.
The Museum of Burgos also houses one of the Tizonas (sword attributed to the Cid), but no one knows exactly if it is authentic. What is certain is that this sword was given by King Fernado el Católico to Pedro de Peralta for his help in getting married with Queen Isabel de Castilla. This sword was acquired by the Junta de Castilla y León together with the Chamber of Commerce to the Marqués de Falces.
In the section of Fine Arts has 9 rooms where works ranging from the Romanesque to Contemporary art, highlighting an altarpiece by Pedro López de Gámiz, a table of Pedro de Berruguet, the Ecce Homo by Jan Mostaert, the portrait of Fray Alonso San Vitores Fray Juan Rizi and several paintings by Mateo Cerezo.
Museum of Burgos can be visited all year except Mondays and days 1 and 6 January 11 and June 29, November 1 and 24, 25 and 31 December, which will be closed.
