Visitors of all ages got creative with biology, culture, and fossil-themed hands-on crafts and activities led by the Burke Education team.
Selfie with a sloth? Why not! Visitors had a chance to enjoy their favorite exhibits and galleries.
Burke paleontologists gave visitors a closer look at fossils, including the massive T. rex skull, being prepared in the paleontology workrooms.
Many visitors chose to mark the occasion with a photo in the Burke Boiserie.
While others shared their favorite memories in a special yearbook.
2019 is a big year for the Burke Museum. While we are closed to the public, our team is transporting millions of objects from the current facility to the New Burke. While the distance from here to there is short (just 480 feet), the effort is monumental. Follow us on Instagram to learn what it’s like to move a museum.
As we bring the New Burke to life this year, we invite you to stay in touch for updates, sneak peeks and announcements related to our grand opening. Sign up for email updates.
We want to thank YOU, our visitors and supporters for leaving your mark and being part of the Burke family.
