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.


"We foster a culture of equity, collaboration, accessibility and responsible interpretation. We also recognize the educational and institutional benefits of diversity and value the unique backgrounds of everyone who uses the museum."
