Installing the New Burke crane

August 3, 2016
Burke Museum

The tower crane that will lift all building materials for the New Burke was recently installed!

Watch this quick time-lapse video of the crane coming together. The crane stands 39 meters tall and features a massive 70-meter-long jib that reaches across the New Burke construction site. 


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. The Burke Museum is open during construction of the New Burke! Plan your visit today.
