Weekend Activities @ the Burke: Mammals

11 am –  3 pm
Included with museum admission; FREE for Burke members or with UW ID

*Saturdays and Sundays in November, 11 am – 3 pm

Every weekend at the Burke, see and even touch objects not normally on display, and do hands-on activities with crafts to take home. Also take part in guided exhibit tours of the Life and Times and Pacific Voices galleries every Saturday at 1 pm.

In November, mammals go on the defensive. Learn about how various species avoid becoming prey, and examine their defense mechanisms using collections not normally on view. Plus, animate your own peek-a-boo pangolin to take home or write a short poem about one of Washington's 141 species of mammals.
