Burke Museum Of Natural History And Culture Reviews & Ratings
Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture has a wide collection of artifacts and mind blowing facts.
The Burke Museum is a great place to visit if you're in Seattle. The museum is family friendly. There are dinosaur exhibits that the kids always love and plenty of exhibits on world culture, as well as the cultures of the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest. A nice small compact cultural museum with not only animal exhibits from dinosaur and Mastodon bones to modern bird plumage and animal skulls but also cultural exhibits of peoples clothing, lifestyles, history. Museum laid out nicely with Natural History upstairs and cultures downstairs. The staff is very friendly and knowledgable. Patronize the gift shop as doing so helps to fund the museum. If you are looking for a trip that won't take all day, but really interesting to see visit the Burke museum.
Tons of cool interesting stuff about the prehistoric age but gets boring after a while
Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, was a fun experience. I had a lot of fun looking at the art sculptures. I cant wait for the new renovations coming on the fall .
It will be wonderful when this opens back up into a larger space because that's my main complaint. They only have 1% of their collection currently displayed in the small space they have. They will also be closed for several months while transporting everything to the new location. I can only imagine things will get better. I love the focus on the Pacific Northwest many of their displays have. The Tyrannosaurus they're working on in front of the public which is so cool to see the process they're using to excavate it out of its stone matrix. For a while, there was a massive googly eye so patrons could see where the eye was on the skull. I love these folks! I cannot wait until the new space opens and I wish them so much luck in the move! I hope to be there opening day in fall of 2019
