The Highline Heritage Museum is launching a new program – ‘Fascinating Tours’ – starting the weekend of June 3, 2023, to increase tourism and spread awareness of Highline history.
With the Highline area being home to many well-known happenings that have been made famous on a global scale, the museum plans to turn the history of these occurrences into storytelling experiences for out-of-town guests and locals.
Highline’s Fascinating Tours will uncover local findings relating to:
- D.B. Cooper
- The Green River Killer
- Ted Bundy
- Jimi Hendrix
- A 12,000-year-old giant sloth discovered under the Sea-Tac airport
- Des Moines Memorial Drive
- …and much more!
From chilling murders infamously covered on Netflix and other streaming platforms to historically significant events that have been lost at bay, the Highline Museum will reveal it all.
Guided by a seasoned storyteller, the experience will last two hours, and will be offered on weekends starting Saturday, June 3, 2023.
Tours will also include the following:
- Shuttle service to and from the meeting location.
- Snacks and beverages.
- Free admission to Highline Museum’s Glow Experience.
- Discounted admission to the National Nordic Museum.
“The Highline Heritage Museum is thrilled to be launching these tours to shed light on some interesting happenings that have taken place in our community,” Executive Director Nancy Salguero McKay said. “Despite how well-known they might be, we have a dedicated team of researchers curating stories and uncovering untold facts to provide a one-of-a-kind experience.”
Tours will be offered on weekends starting Saturday, June 3, 2023.
The public can purchase tickets for $65.00 each.

I look forward to attending more than one of these tours!
However, I would be remiss in not mentioning that the HHM is by no means the only museum within the Highline area. For example, the “Living Road of Remembrance” honoring World War I Veterans is maintained by the Des Moines Memorial Drive Preservation Association at Sunnydale School at the corner of 156th Ave. And of course, we have the Des Moines Historical Museum on 225th off of Marine View Drive. 🙂
Highline also has the Sea Mar Museum of Chicano/a/Latino/a Culture, the first Chicano/Latino museum in the state at 9635 Des Moines Memorial Drive.
Thank you for your comments, we will make sure our language/message is all-encompassing. Highline Heritage Museum represents the Highline communities as a whole and its service area resembles the Highline School district boundaries with White Center, Burien, SeaTac, Normandy Park, and part of Des Moines. The Des Moines Memorial Drive Preservation Museum and Association covers this fantastic project with the Road of Remembrance that reaches beyond the Highline area. The Sea Mar Museum of Chicano/a/Latino/ is a beautiful museum that also reaches beyond the Highline area.
