Construction forges ahead despite rain

October 5, 2016
Burke Museum

The rain is upon us and it’s coming down harder than anyone anticipated! New Burke construction crews are making steady progress despite the dreary fall weather and the walls of the lower level are nearly complete.

Watch the walls go up in this quick one-minute time-lapse video of construction from September 19 – October 24, 2016:

In the coming month, crews will begin pouring the foundation and forming walls for the main level (there will be four total levels in the New Burke)!


Similar to the “inside-out” vision for the New Burke experience, we hope to provide a glimpse into the two-year construction of the New Burke Museum. Visit the New Burke Project page for answers to common questions about the project.
