Burke educators share real museum objects with classrooms and communities across the state

BurkeMobile is a traveling program that brings Burke educators and real museum objects to classrooms and schools across Washington state. Students investigate our state’s natural and cultural heritage through hands-on activities that augment classroom curriculum, stimulate curiosity, model new ways to learn, and create “wow” moments your students will never forget. BurkeMobile programs are a great fit for your classroom, entire school or library! 

We offer two BurkeMobile programming formats:

  • Early Learners: Our early learner programs are designed for children in preschool and kindergarten, ages 3 and up. Taught by Burke educators, these lessons include hands-on activities and interactions with real museum objects.
  • Mini Museum: Let us transform your gym or library into a miniature museum! Mini Museum programs offer an opportunity to get up close and personal with specimens, objects and artifacts that represent different areas of the Burke’s collections. Interpreted by our Burke educators, these interactive exhibits encourage object-based, hands-on learning on a variety of topics. 

Please note: Effective September 1, 2018, the BurkeMobile program will be offered only to schools and educational organizations outside of King County. BurkeMobile is designed to bring the museum education experience to communities geographically unable to visit the Burke. We encourage King County schools and groups to consider a group visit to the Burke Museum or our Burke Boxes program.
