Fish Collections Tour: Adult Groups
The Burke's Ichthyology Collection hosts tours of the facility to accommodate most interests and age groups including college/university and adult groups. The first part of the program involves a tour of our facilities where we prepare, catalog, archive and conduct research on more than 11 million museum fish specimens. The second part of the tour involves a detailed look at some of the more interesting examples of fish diversity. Using our collection of preserved specimens, we will show you many interesting and unusual fishes from around the world and discuss the evolutionary adaptive significance of their morphology.

Arranging a Visit: Reservations are required and should be made one to two months in advance.
