Included with museum admission; FREE for Burke members, w/UW ID, and children 4 & under
Bring your budding paleontologist to the Burke for monthly fossilized fun. Enjoy three prehistoric stations every month ranging from touching real fossils, making discoveries in the dig pit, solving dinosaur mysteries, dino dress-up and more. Activities and themes change monthly so there’s always something new!
This month, learn about animals like caimans, sharks and turtles, who lived alongside dinosaurs and are still around today. Unearth an ichthyosaur in the dig pit and create a paper shark chomper to take home!
Please note: I Dig Dinos is open to everyone but is geared toward ages 3-7.
Parking is free in UW parking lots on Sundays, including the N5 parking lot closest to the Burke Museum. Plan your visit.
