Ever wondered about the difference between a rock and a mineral, or how crystals form? Join us for a member happy hour and go behind the scenes with Burke geologists to see some of our extensive mineral collection, a few meteorites and an array of different rocks. Curator, Liz Nesbitt will be on-hand to answer all of your questions!

Bring a friend and "rock" the night away!

What is "Burke after Work"? An exclusive opportunity for members to access the museum’s exhibits and experts after museum hours! Each quarterly happy hour features a theme from our collection and a chance to speak one-on-one with Burke specialists, so you can ask questions about the objects and learn more about what’s happening behind the scenes. (Plus food and drink, of course!) Members can also take a docent-led tour of the exhibits and participate in a variety of fun activities.
