Burke Museum | Mobile Home


Annual Behind-the-Scenes Night

Wed., Feb. 20, 2013 | 5 – 8 pm

A free benefit of membership

One night a year, Burke members are invited behind the scenes of the museum. Behind-the-Scenes Night is an exclusive opportunity for members to see the Burke collections, meet curators and collection managers, and learn about current research. Members will discover every Burke division, including the Herbarium, archaeology, ornithology (birds), ethnology, ichthyology (fish), mammalogy, paleobotany, vertebrate and invertebrate paleontology, and entomology (spiders & insects).

See objects and activities that are not normally open to the public, including  contemporary Northwest Coast Native art, fossil preparation, vials of spiders, drawers full of birds and skeletons, DNA-filled freezers, and more.

This is a special evening just for members, and a rare opportunity not to be missed! Not a member? Join today!
