Curators Dinner

Join us for the annual Burke Museum Curators Dinner!

The Burke Museum Association will hold its Annual Curators Dinner on Friday, May 5, 2017.

This year, Curators Dinner will be held at the Mountaineers Club Seattle Program Center and will feature a rare, behind-the-scenes tour of the Burke oversize collections, the first time this exclusive opportunity has been offered to the community.

This lively event features:

  • Live auction with one-of-a-kind curator-led experiences and adventures
  • Behind-the-scenes tours of the museum’s collections
  • Silent auction, including natural history and Native American art and a selection of Northwest wines
  • Cocktail reception and three-course dinner
