We capture YOUR stories. By creating exhibits, public programs and educational programs from these stories, HHM can bridge the years from the earliest pioneer recollections, to the newest immigrant stories.
We believe that exploring everyone’s heritage is integral to learning what our community truly is. Our collections number many thousands of artifacts, documents and photographs from Highline’s past. As a new museum, we will be using these items, along with interactive experiences, to help make our history alive and relevant for all of our visitors.
We hope you find yourself and your own history mirrored in the Highline Heritage Museum. Highline has a rich history and we want you to enjoy it and enjoy making it available to all of our friends and neighbors.
This is megalonyx jeffersonii, a prehistoric sloth discovered in 1967 by construction workers installing the lead-in lights on the north end of the first runway at SeaTac Airport. We call him Dino, and you will see more of him this summer as we expand our information about the museum. While the actual bones reside at the Burke Museum at the University of Washington, we are hoping the community will help us have a cast of this 17 foot long creature made and installed in our new museum. We think every schoolchild in Highline needs to embrace the information that these gigantic creatures roamed our area. Click donate above to help!
