Bring your budding paleontologist to the Burke for monthly fossilized fun. Enjoy three prehistoric stations every month ranging from touching real fossils, making discoveries in the dino dig pit, solving dinosaur mysteries, dino dress-up and more. Activities and themes change monthly so there’s always something new! 

In March, discover the bizarre animals and insects that lived during the Age of Dinosaurs and are still alive today! Spend some time bird watching on the UW campus, make a hungry shark, and learn more about echidnas, dragonflies, turtles and more.

Please note: I Dig Dinos is open to everyone but is geared toward ages 3-7. 
Parking is free in UW parking lots on Sundays, including the N5 parking lot closest to the Burke Museum. Plan your visit.
