  • We had a great time here. It's a small museum, but one of the most interesting in Seattle. Lots of native history and artifacts. We really enjoyed the dinosaurs and fossils. We spent around 2 hours here. Admission is reasonable ($10 for adults) and you can get a discount of $2 if you are a AAA member, but hurry up because the museum will be closed from January to October 2019 to move into their new building next door. Once that happens, prices will go up, but so will the number of exhibits.
  • The Burke Museum has nice natural history exhibits but is on the smaller side. I spent somewhere between 30 and 60 minutes here when I visited. On the plus side it is free for UW students, faculty, and staff - and located on campus. Also it is free on the first Thursday of each month for everyone else.
  • Fun little museum that is free true first Thursday of the month. It takes about two hours to go through the whole thing. It’s is a good place to take kids because plenty the displays of kid friendly and interactive. Come here to educate yourself about Seattles diverse cultures and the native flora and fauna of Washington.
  • This is a fantastic museum. You might think that other museums are good but this museum is the best.
  • Super friendly staff! Nice small museum. A great stop in the University of WA.
