Field Trip to the Burke Museum


May 13th | categories:

I decided when moving home, to stop taking all the cool things to do here for granted. So now I'm on a museum kick, and last weekend it was the Burke Museum at UW.

Approaching the Burke, you'll find some colosal Native American carvings that immediately establish the museums authority on the subject. Pacific Voices is one of their ongoing exhibits which features more than 17 cutures from around the Pacific.

You'll also get the feeling that they could use some land scaping. The property around the place looks just like the woods surrounding the house I grew up in. But looking closer, you'll find descriptions of all the local plants and their uses to native peoples, which include everything from food to medicinal.

After entering, I was stokedthat it's full of stuff! Fine arts is beautiful, but stuff from hundreds of millions of years ago is more interesting to me. They also let you take photos of all their stuff, and keep the endless amount of objects cluttering up their basement on rotation.

Finally, the staff is incredibly welcoming, and informative. You should go check the place out, I'm sure you'll have a pleasant experience, and probably even go back!
