The Burke Museum creates a better understanding of the world and our place in it. The museum is responsible for Washington State collections of natural and cultural heritage and sharing the knowledge that makes them meaningful. The Burke welcomes a broad and diverse audience and provides a community gathering place that nurtures life-long learning and encourages respect, responsibility and reflection.

UPDATE 1/1/19: The Burke is currently moving into its new home, which means that the museum has temporarily closed its doors to the public. Check back in Fall 2019 for more information on its reopening! Learn more about their renovations here.
