Chinatown/International District, Wing Luke Museum, and Locke Library Tour

Join us for an exciting tour of one of Seattle's oldest neighborhoods: the Chinatown/International District (known to locals simply as the ID). The ID promotes itself as a welcoming place for immigrants and those looking to make a better life for themselves. Nowhere else can you find so many different cultures coming together to form one neighborhood. In 1979, the neighborhood was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience will be our host for a tour of the Governor Gary Locke Library & Community Heritage Center, and a walking tour of the Chinatown/International District neighborhood.  The Historic Hotel Tour allows visitors to follow the footsteps of Asian Pacific American pioneers. During our visit to the Locke Library, we'll learn about the role the library plays in the community and hear about their innovative oral history program. Finally, through our walking tour of the historic ID neighborhood, we'll learn about the facts, myths and legends of the area, and learn more about the diverse contributions of Asian cultures to Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.
