From the Inside Out
It’s a new kind of museum—and a whole new way to experience our world.
Experience the Burke
The Burke collects a lot of things, dust isn't one of them.
The Burke brings research and collections out from behind the scenes so you can bring your perspective and your passions forward.
As the Washington State Museum of Natural History and Culture, our collections are your collections. We can use them to learn about the past, connect to the world around us, and create a better future together.
At the Burke, we bring together people, objects and the stories that make them meaningful.
