Free with Smithsonian Museum Day ticket
Smithsonian Museum Day is an annual celebration of boundless curiosity hosted by Smithsonian magazine. Participating museums across the country—including the Burke—provide entry to anyone presenting a Smithsonian Museum Day ticket.
The Smithsonian Museum Day ticket provides free admission for up to two people to the Burke Museum on September 22 only. Visitors must show the ticket to the admissions staff (either on their phone or a printed copy) to redeem free admission.
Please note that there are several events on campus on this day and parking will be limited. If the nearby parking lots are full, there is street parking available on adjacent streets and other lots on campus that are a short walk away. View our Directions & Parking page for more information about parking and public transportation.
