Fun for learners of all ages

The Burke offers a variety of unique experiences crafted especially for families and youth in the form of camps, museum-wide family events, immersive play spaces, weekend early-learner programs, and evening and weekend teen programs.

These agile programs bring the museum to life for young learners through games, crafts, stories, experiments, demonstrations, discussions, and play.
