Based on directions from the State of Washington and King County health officials, the Burke Museum is CLOSED until it is safe to reopen.
This is a preventative action to slow the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the safety of our community, visitors, staff, and volunteers.
Stay healthy and safe—we miss you already! Visit Burke from Home to enjoy the museum when you can't visit in person.
Polly Olsen (Yakama), the Burke Museum's Tribal Liaison, teaches us how to harvest and make Nettle Pesto from scratch. This delicious and nutritious dish incorporates native plants that peoples of the Northwest have harvested for many years.
