THE BURKE

UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON BURKE MUSEUM
OF NATURAL HISTORY & CULTURE

 

The Burke is a museum focused on demonstrating the science of its research and the relevance of its collections as active resources in addressing today’s challenges. With impactful programming and ever-changing exhibit spaces, this research-focused museum achieves its intended vision by displaying more of its work to visitors and presenting typology specific collections and hands on exhibit experiences with their research labs and collections vaults. The resulting experience shows “what we know and how we know it”.
