Construction on the New Burke is complete

March 28, 2018
Burke Museum

In May 2016, more than 500 guests gathered on the Northwest corner of UW's campus to celebrate the New Burke’s official groundbreaking. Less than two years later, construction on the New Burke building is complete!

This is an amazing milestone made possible by the wonderful support of our donors. Even with construction finished, there is still a lot of work ahead. In addition to kicking off our Community Campaign in April, we will begin the meticulous process of moving collections to their new home, and building the exhibits that will bring "See Through the Burke" to life.

This is shaping up to be one of the busiest years ever at the Burke. Subscribe to receive Burke Museum emails for more updates as we move towards Grand Opening in fall 2019.

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