To learn more about these sleuths who have been working on the case, visit the Burke Museum of Natural History & Culture's earthquake exhibit, which opens today and runs through Sept. 2.

The exhibit includes memorabilia from last year's temblor — such as a van that was crushed by bricks — and a series of panels explaining the science behind earthquakes in the Pacific Northwest.

Hours: Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursdays until 8 p.m.

Admission: $6.50 general; $5 for seniors; $3 for ages 6-18. Free for Burke members, UW students, faculty, staff and the first Thursday of every month.

Directions: The Burke Museum is located just minutes from downtown Seattle on the northwest corner of the University of Washington campus near 17th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 45th Street.

Parking: On-campus parking is pro-rated depending on length of stay, and may range from $1-$7 weekdays (an up-front fee of $7 is required — cash or check only), and $1-$3 Saturdays before noon (an up-front fee of $3 is required — cash or check only). Parking is free after noon Saturdays and all day Sundays.
