In addition to long-term exhibits, the Burke Museum also presents special exhibits that rotate several times a year. From conservation photography, to recent discoveries in natural history, to the finest traditional and contemporary cultural arts, Burke exhibits invite all visitors to examine the critical issues of our time.
Create, collaborate, innovate. Help the Burke build a “living exhibit” by telling us about the people, places, ideas and objects that shape your life. Displays will change and grow as visitors share their opinions and experiences through hands-on activities and art.
Discover the sights, sounds, smells and stories of the North Cascades. Through immersive, multi-sensory experiences, visitors will be transported to the lowland valleys, dense forests and mountain peaks of this remarkable ecosystem—one of the most intact wild lands in the U.S.—located just a few hours from Seattle.
