Last Behind-the-Scenes Night in the Current Burke
What will we uncover as we pack up the museum? How do you move millions of objects? Find out at our final* Behind-the-Scenes Night in the current museum. This extra-special take on our annual members’ event takes you back into the collections where you’ll get to see objects up close, meet Burke experts, and learn how they’re preparing for our once-in-a lifetime move.

First Look Inside the New Burke
Behind-the-Scenes Night marks the official launch of the Community Campaign for the New Burke—our final fundraising push before we open the doors to the New Burke in 2019. On this one night only, we’re opening a section of the New Burke early to give you a sneak peek of what’s inside, with Executive Director Julie Stein. 

This event is for Burke Museum Members and Donors. This is an all-ages event. Valid photo ID required for alcoholic beverages.

*The current museum will remain open to the public through 2018!

New Burke Sneak Peek Information

Sneak Peeks will depart from the east entrance of the New Burke. Burke staff will be on-hand in the current museum to guide guests to the new building entrance. Sneak Peeks will depart every half hour from 5–7:30 pm so you can enjoy Behind-the-Scenes Night experience in the current Burke before or after your sneak peek!
