The Burke County Museum of Local History will join over 100 historic sites, house museums, art museums, and other points of interest throughout Georgia opening their doors to the public, FREE of charge, and offering a variety of in-person and virtual experiences that encourage Georgians to experience the history, arts, and cultural opportunities in our own backyard.
