We can't wait to see you!
With working labs you can see into, one-of-a-kind objects all around you, and galleries filled with curiosity and conversation, at the Burke, you see—and feel—a world alive. The Burke Museum is located on the University of Washington campus in Seattle with a focus on dinosaurs, fossils, Northwest Native art, plant and animal collections, and cultural pieces from across the globe.
We’re the same museum you know and love, with some important updates that put your safety first.
Beginning October 25, 2021, proof of vaccination will be required for museum admission.
Please view our Welcome Back Guidelines for more information.
Masks are required for all
All staff and visitors (except children under the age of 5) are required to wear a mask in all public spaces and galleries for the entirety of their visit, regardless of vaccination status or if they are the only person/pod in a gallery. Children ages 3–4 are encouraged to wear masks, although not required.
