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.
Monday, October 14, was Indigenous Peoples' Day in the City of Seattle and at the new Burke Museum! Thank you to everyone who came out to join us in celebration.
