Explore Seattle's Burke Museum Virtually

What began with a group of teenagers collecting objects and specimens soon grew to become the Hall of Young Naturalists. Today, it is known as the Burke Museum, and its storied history spans 130 years. Nestled in nearby Seattle, the museum features exciting exhibits of 16 million objects highlighting the flora, fauna, and natural resources of Washington state. If you would like to enjoy a virtual look at Seattle’s Burke Museum, here is some of what you can discover from the comfort of your Redmond apartment.

Bill Holm Center

The Bill Holm Center is a premier destination for the study of the Native arts of the Pacific Northwest. Part of the museum's Culture Department, the center strives to foster an appreciation and understanding of Native art in our region. The collection features baskets, photographs, masks, and more. You can learn all about them during the video tour.


The field of archaeology shows "how people lived in the past, from thousands of years ago to recent times." While the museum's archaeology collection features items from around the world, it mainly focuses on items from the Pacific Northwest. The collection includes artifacts and plant remains, which you can view online.

Baird's Beaked Whale

The 39-foot-long Baird's beaked whale washed ashore in Washington in 2015. The skeleton is only one of ten on view in the United States, and it took two years to prepare the specimen for display. These whales are rarely seen or studied, making it a unique and exciting addition to the museum's collection.
