Directions & Parking


This is your opportunity to go beyond the glass into collection workspaces and interact with our collections staff.

Burke staff, students, and volunteers will bring specimens from our two off-site collections — the Ichthyology collection and the Herbarium — to share with guests at the Burke during the event.

What should I bring? 

Be ready to show your ticket (sent via email) on your mobile device, or bring a printed copy of each ticket.  


What should I leave at home? 

Please leave bags and backpacks at home. This experience includes access to small spaces with fragile objects that can easily be knocked over or damaged by bags and purses. Thank you for helping keep our collection safe! 


How is the Burke prioritizing safety? 

To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone, we are limiting the number of people in spaces at a time.  

You can learn all the details about our COVID Welcome Back Guidelines on our website. 


Where can I park? 

Pay-by-the-hour parking managed by UW is available in the N1 lot directly adjacent to the museum. More information about how to get to the museum can be found here
