Support the Burke’s public and research programs while getting an insider’s view of the Museum.
Check back soon for new volunteer opportunities!
Volunteers are an essential part of the Burke, both in the galleries and behind the scenes. Volunteers assist with research, provide collections maintenance, engage Burke visitors and enhance our mission. Their skills, generosity and passion for the natural world make the Burke a dynamic and exciting center for the community.
In exchange for their generous service, Burke volunteers receive great perks including free museum admission, discounts in the store and café, invitations to exclusive events and annual recognition. In addition, volunteering at the Burke opens the door to a new museum community of fellow volunteers, staff and industry experts who share a similar passion for the natural world.
As we gear up for the New Burke, the volunteer program is taking a moment to reevaluate how best to serve our volunteers, events and staff. Please check back in 2018 for more ways to get involved as we look forward to our new museum, and a whole new way of engaging our community.
