BurkeMobile programs bring the museum to you!

Burke educators and real collections travel to schools across Washington state, transforming your school or library into a pop-up museum. With facilitated activities that have been designed for learners of all ages, our programs support classroom curriculum and give your students an unforgettable experience!

BurkeMobile is a traveling program that brings the Burke Museum education experience to communities geographically unable to visit the museum. 

While we're not able to offer in-person programs right now, we're excited to introduce two NEW virtual learning opportunities. Registration is now open for Burke Virtual Education Programs!

Early Learners Programs

Early Learners Programs are designed for children in preschool (ages 3 and up) to 1st grade. Taught by Burke educators, these classroom-based lessons include hands-on activities and interactions with real museum objects.


Mini Museum Programs

Mini Museum Programs are designed for all ages and offer an opportunity to get up-close with specimens, objects and artifacts that represent different areas of the Burke’s collections.

Interpreted by Burke educators, these interactive exhibits offer hands-on learning on a variety of natural history and cultural topics. Each Mini Museum Program can be booked for an In-School Experience or a Community Event such as a STEM night, library program, or a family night. Only one program can be booked per visit.


NEW Virtual Education Programs are here!

We're excited to offer two new virtual learning experiences this year. 

Registration is now open—save your spot today!
