With the Seattle Southside/Highline area being home to many well-known happenings that have been made famous on a global scale, the Highline Heritage 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 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.

Tours will be offered on Saturdays and Sundays beginning 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 public can purchase tickets for $65.00 per person. Discounted tickets will soon be available as part of the Seattle Southside Savings Pass. To learn more and purchase tickets, visit:
