UW + the Burke

Free admission with your UW ID card

University of Washington students, faculty and staff get in free to the Burke with a UW ID! Note: The Burke is CLOSED to prepare for the New Burke (opening fall 2019)!

The Burke has been part of the University of Washington since its earliest days, and that partnership continues today.

Stay and play. Burke events and exhibits are a great reason for staff and faculty to hang out with family and friends on campus. Photo: Lora Shinn.
