The New Burke Grand Opening is coming October 12–14

See the New Burke come to life

In May 2016, more than 500 guests gathered on the Northwest corner of the University of Washington campus to celebrate the New Burke’s official groundbreaking. Less than two years later, construction was complete and the Burke team began to move millions of meticulously-packed objects from the former facility into the New Burke. Now that the objects are in their new home, we're busy unpacking collections and building the exhibits inside the New Burke. 

We're getting closer and closer to the New Burke Grand Opening on October 12, 2019! Want to stay in the loop about the New Burke? Subscribe to New Burke News email updates.
