Burke by the Numbers

We just published our 08-09 Annual Report and it's chock full of fun facts and stats about everything the Burke accomplished over the past year.

To me, the most interesting page in the report is "Burke by the Numbers." In the last 12 months...

...109,000 people visited the museum, including 37,300 K-12 students and 18,000 UW students.

...7,500 questions were answered by Burke collections experts via phone or e-mail.

...869 people followed the Burke on Twitter.

...2,260 people held Burke memberships.

...156,700 people were served outside the walls of the Burke, through traveling exhibits, professional and community programs, and school outreach.

...2,808,357 people visited the Burke Museum Web site.
