Weekend Activities @ the Burke: Birds

Sat., Oct. 26, 2013 – Sun., Oct. 27, 2013 | 11 am –  3 pm

Included with museum admission; FREE for Burke members or with UW ID

*Saturdays and Sundays in October, 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 October, discover what makes our feathered friends “feathered.” What's in a wing? Find out more about bird wings, plumage, and the feathers that make it all possible. See a few beautiful wings from the collection, and craft your own plumage pin.

Themes change monthly, so there's always something new!
