Burke Museum

The Burke Museum is engaged in a multi-year transformation project that will culminate in a new facility. The New Burke will be a flagship natural history and culture museum that inspires wonder and pride about the Northwest and our place in the world.

Construction on the project will begin in May 2016, with a planned opening of the new facility in late 2019. Join us for an open house to learn more about the New Burke and share your questions and thoughts. Burke Museum Executive Director Julie K. Stein will present and representatives from Skanska, general contractor/construction manager of the New Burke project, will be on-hand to answer questions.

Questions? Call 206.616.7538 or email burkepr@uw.edu.
