One of the Northwest's best natural history museums, the Burke boasts an impressive stash of fossils, including a 20,000-year-old sabre-toothed cat. Equally compelling is the focus on over a dozen different Native American cultures. There's free admission on the first Thursday of the month, when the museum stays open until 8pm.

Also of note is the Pacific Northwest basketry collection, but tribes from all around the Pacific Rim are represented, including groups from Asia and Micronesia.
