Burke Museum Home

UW Family

As an employee of the University of Washington, the Burke is truly your museum. Seven days a week, your Husky Card gets you free access to Burke exhibits and programs. Want to get away from your desk? Take twenty minutes to come see your favorite fossils and masks or grab a coffee and enjoy the ambiance of the Burke Café.

Want to share Burke exhibits and programs with your family?
