  • Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park - Seattle Unit

    Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park - Seattle Unit

    319 2nd Ave S
    Daily 9AM-5PM except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day. Free. A key attraction in the Pioneer Square area. It is the Seattle branch of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, the remainder of which is in Alaska. Highlights the city's key role as the "Gateway to the Gold Fields" in supplying most of the Klondike stampeders of 1897 - 1898. National Park Service Rangers and volunteers staff the Seattle unit. They can provide information and perspective not only on the Gold Rush but also on Seattle's past and present. The Seattle unit contains many artifacts and historical photographs related to the Gold Rush. Movies about the Gold Rush (27 minutes), Seattle (15 minutes) and the Chilkoot Pass (15 minutes) are shown upon request except in summer when they're shown on a regular schedule. Rangers conduct free walking tours of the Pioneer Square area in the summer. They also demonstrate gold panning for school groups.

  • Smith Tower Observation Deck

    Smith Tower Observation Deck

    506 2nd AveSte 1021
    50 adults, $6 students and seniors, $5 children. Built in 1914, the Smith Tower was Seattle's first skyscraper and is probably the only tall building left in Seattle where uniformed attendants operate the elevators. Instead of stepping into a metal box with no view, you'll observe the different floors and peer into offices as you ascend or descend. How many people under the age of, say, 20 or so have ever had that experience? An outdoor observation deck on the 35th floor wraps completely around the four sides of the tower, providing panoramic views of the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges, including Mt. Rainier, as well as of Elliott Bay, downtown Seattle, and Pioneer Square. The interior of the 35th floor contains the Chinese Room, with an ornate carved ceiling and a number of decorative flourishes imported from China in the early 20th century.

  • Bill Speidel's Underground Tour

    Bill Speidel's Underground Tour

    608 1st Ave
    Hourly, hours depending on season. $16.00 adults, $15.00 military with ID, $13.00 seniors and students, $8.00 children under 12. The underground tour covers the area around Pioneer Square, and visits sites both above and below ground. On June 6, 1889, a great fire burned down most of downtown Seattle. City engineers rebuilt the city several feet above the high tide line to prevent flooding, giving rise to a complex underground tunnel system which housed the old downtown. Tours are insightful and humourous.
