My 5 year old daughter loved this place! Dinosaurs, science, volcanoes, science and culture. It's just big enough to spend a few hours here and small enough that she doesn't get bored. Perfect! It was interesting for everyone who went, adults and children.

We attended Dino Days at the Burke Museum. It was so much fun with so many displays and a plethora of information. We met several paleontologists and they graciously answered all of our questions. We also enjoyed all the permanent cultural displays.

The museum isn’t bad, but I wish it was bigger with more exhibits. It’s interesting to see the geologists at work behind the glass. Overall however, I think there’s definitely room for improvement.

This facility is located on the UW campus and has excellent, well-curated displays featuring regional/trans-Pacific topics, with an emphasis on geology, paleontology, and anthropology. A highlight was seeing an actual Tyrannosaurus skull (excavated by UW scientists in Montana) being prepared for exhibit :)). There’s learning...More
