Bill Speidel's Underground Tour
This attraction is, in our opinion, one of the most interesting in all of Seattle, Bill Speidel's Underground Tour offering a completely unique look at the city on top of a city. The 75-minute tour begins beneath Doc Maynards Public House and ends in Rogues Gallery and Underground Gift Shop, which holds displays, memorabilia, and souvenirs. You will see Pioneer Square and the underground up close and personal, your journey taking you through rugged conditions underground, complete with rickety stairs (in spots) and spotty lighting. The hollow tunnels reach up to 35 feet in places!
Ride the Ducks
Pike Place Market
Welcome to Pike Place Market, Seattle's original farmers market, one of the oldest in the country, first established in 1907. Pike Place Market is considered to be a 'vibrant neighborhood comprised of hundreds of farmers, craftspeople, small businesses, and residents'. The 9-acre historic district consists of several different market areas, the entire conglomerate sure to satisfy all your shopping needs providing everything from locally processed meats and cheeses to kitchenware and body care products. There are also public tours of the market, featuring classes (art, food, cooking), merchant information, and fun facts about the market overall.
Museum of Pop Culture
Also known as MoPOP today, this nonprofit museum is dedicated to contemporary pop culture, first founded in 2000 by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. Allen was inspired by Jimi Hendrix and wanted a space to expand on that inspiration. Today you will see dozens of in-depth exhibits and hands-on experiences within, with a wide range of subjects from Bo Diddley to Bob Dylan. There is certainly something for everyone here, allowing you to explore and 'find your fandom'. Some examples of current exhibits to give you a better idea of what you will see include Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses, Prince from Minneapolis, Scared to Death: The Thrill of Horror Films, and Hendrix: Wild Blue Angel.
Spooked in Seattle
The museum half of this adventure showcases paranormal memorabilia and funerary items, oftentimes referred to as the 'Death Museum'. Inside you will see vintage 1800s mourning jewelry, attire, coffins, and embalming tools and equipment. The tours guides here partner with the folks from AGHOST, which stands for Advanced Ghost Hunters of Seattle Tacoma. These are the oldest running tours of their kind in the area and they aim to 'tell the real stories of haunted Seattle' by using the evidence collected on actual paranormal investigations. The tours have been rated #2 in the US by USA Today in 2018, #6 by Timeout, and earned the 2019 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
Olympic Sculpture Park
For 120 years this museum has been setting the standard for research and educational programs in the pacific northwest, as well as across the globe. In fact, out of the 16 million items here at the museum, 19,650 specimens and objects have been loaned to global researchers, and the researchers at Burke have themselves discovered 11 new species! That's quite impressive! While here your group will be able to explore various subjects relating to culture, biology, and geology and paleontology. Explore culture further in the Bill Holm Center, which studies Northwest native art. Then head to the biology department and explore such subjects as arachnology, malacology, and ornithology. Be sure to also see the micropaleontology and paleobotany sections before you go! There are special education programs for school groups that can be set up, as well.
