Burke educators share real museum objects with classrooms and communities across the state

In this special traveling program, Burke educators share real museum objects with classrooms across the state, where students participate in hands-on, standards-based investigations of cultures and the natural world.

BurkeMobile brings Native American objects, real fossils, mammal skulls and museum-prepared birds to your classroom, gymnasium, library—or whatever space works for you! BurkeMobile programs augment classroom curriculum, stimulate curiosity, model new ways to learn and create “wow” moments your students will never forget.

Choose from Earth science, life science, or arts and cultural heritage programs. BurkeMobile can be adapted for single or multiple classrooms, or even for the whole school! Our program is designed to be customizable, so give us a call to discuss your options.

Trained Burke educators know just what it takes to get students engaged and excited about new topics.


Programs are available for half, full or multi-day experiences and suitable for classrooms, schools, gymnasiums, community centers and more. Every BurkeMobile experience includes real museum objects and one or more fabulous Burke educators to facilitate activities. BurkeMobile programs are customizable, so if you don't see what you're looking for, we'd be happy to discuss different options.


Cost varies by distance and number of students. Cost assistance may be available. Please contact us for more information.

Burke Education

“My students enjoyed handling the artifacts ... Many of them do not have the opportunity to visit museums so it was a unique and eye-opening experience.”

–Seventh-grade teacher

“As a teacher I will use this experience as a springboard for writing/science/social studies all year long. It enabled my students to all have a common shared experience on which to build future learning.”
