Temporary Closure Notice

Based on recommendations from the State of Washington and King County health officials, the Burke Museum is closed until it is safe to reopen. We are also postponing all programs at this time. 

As a public gathering space, this is a preventative action to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and ensure the safety of our community, visitors, staff and volunteers.

If you have questions or pre-purchased tickets, contact, 206.543.7907 to reschedule.

We will post any updates to this page.
