History Hike

Grab your sneakers, leash up the dog, and strap the kids into their strollers! The Tacoma History Hike is the chance to explore downtown Tacoma as you collect the answers to historical trivia in a race against time. Held in June, the Tacoma History Hike will actively involve your entire family in learning more about our area.

The Tacoma History Hike begins at the Washington State History Museum and leads you to a variety of checkpoints within a 1.5-mile radius, allowing you to walk, run, or bike the course. Each checkpoint provides the answer to a question of Tacoma-related historical trivia. Collect as many as you can in the time allotted, and return to the Museum for music, awards, goody bags, and free admission to the History Museum. It’s a fun way to spend the day with family and friends, rain or shine.

  • Participate solo or sign up as a team of up to five people.
  • Easy to register online.
  • Free admission to the History Museum the day of the Hike.
  • Registration includes an event T-shirt!
