Burke Museum information
An interesting hybrid museum covering both natural history and indigenous cultures of the Pacific Rim. On the entry level floor is, arguably, Washington's best natural-history collection focusing on the geology and evolution of the state. It guards an impressive stash of fossils, including a 20,000-year-old sabre-toothed cat. Downstairs is the 'Pacific Voices' exhibition with cultural artifacts amassed from around the Pacific Rim from Hawaii to Japan to Micronesia. The centerpiece is an excellent Pacific Northwest collection with some dramatic Kwakwaka'wakw masks from BC.
There's free admission on the first Thursday of the month, when the museum stays open until 8pm.
