We are the Highline Heritage Museum! We capture the stories of the Highline region, and bridge the years from the earliest of times, to the newest immigrant stories. History and heritage are a personal matter to everyone. We believe that exploring everyone’s heritage allows us to experience a personal journey that enriches us as a community.
The Highline Heritage Museum is opening its doors in June 2019, but this organization was founded in 1994 as the Burien Heritage Society and later as the Highline Historical Society.
Our passion is for our visitors to have access to a broad spectrum of information sources and cultural perspectives. We envision ourselves sitting at a round table where no one is the leader and stories are heard respectfully, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disabilities, or ethnicity. We want our stories to spark discussions and to share differences and similarities. We are creating a place where visitors can connect with the stories and with each other.
