BurkeMobile Program Information

We look forward to visiting you!


BurkeMobile reservations are required at least two weeks in advance. We accept reservations for the following school year beginning June 1. Reservations for the current school year are accepted on an ongoing basis. Programs can be arranged through the online reservation form, by emailing us at burked@uw.edu, or by calling us at 206.543.5591.

Please note: Effective September 1, 2018, the BurkeMobile program will be offered only to schools and educational organizations outside of King County. BurkeMobile is designed to bring the museum education experience to communities geographically unable to visit the Burke. We encourage King County schools and groups to consider a group visit to the Burke Museum or our Burke Boxes program.


Please let us know as soon as possible should you need to reschedule or cancel your program. Reservations for BurkeMobile programs must be made at least two weeks in advance; we will not be able to reschedule your program for a date less than two weeks out.

Cancellation Policy

BurkeMobile programs must be cancelled a minimum of two weeks in advance to receive a refund. Efforts will be made to reschedule your program if you must cancel within two weeks prior to your program, but refunds cannot be offered.


Program fees are a flat-rate based on location and include travel. We've listed the cost ranges by program type. For an exact quote please contact Burke Education.

  • Early Learner Programs: $350–$1,450
  • Mini Museum: $650-$1,600
Cost Assistance

Our generous donors make it possible for us to offer cost assistance for organizations with 40% or more of their student population eligible for the National School Lunch Program. Cost assistance offerings are as follows:

  • Organizations with 40-59% of their student population eligible for the National School Lunch program qualify for half-priced program fees
  • Organizations with 60-100% of their student population eligible for the National School Lunch program qualify for waived program fees

Some cost assistance is available for other circumstances. Please contact us if you have questions.


Payment is due by the date of your program. You can pay by credit card, check or purchase order. Paying before the date of your program is recommended, as Burke educators cannot accept forms of payment on the day of the program.

Credit Card: Please call Burke Education at 206.543.5591 to pay with a credit card.
