We didn't go inside, but the lit hanging sculpture between the buildings caught our eye as we passed by in the evening! SO COOL!
Very informative and thoughtful place to see the needs of some parts of the world being addressed. The way the humanitarian efforts are done is impressive.
The center provides a good overview of the Foundation. Most displays are interactive and they try very hard to make you think about how you can be a part of the solution! Even the toilets are inspirin... read more »
After spending the day at Seattle Center we decided to check out the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Visitor Center. Great place to visit to wind down after a long day. Staff members manning the desk were informative and friendly. You are welcome to walk through sections of the building, each one different, to learn about people's stories. The goal of the visitor center is to help motivate or inspire you to take action to improve the lives of others - at the end of the tour you can offer up ways on how you want to help. Lots of interactive stations for kids to push, pull, roll, lift...etc. Wheelchair and/or baby stroller accessible. Bathrooms are located by the entrance to the left of the front desk. Coats/jackets, backpacks and/or extra items can be stored conveniently in baskets by the front desk at no charge. No food/drinks allowed inside (baby bottles, water bottles are ok - open container is not). Paid garage parking available ($15/day). Also check out the coffee shop, Seattle Grind, located inside the parking garage.
Great place for kids to learn about things that are happening around the world. Free entrance and tour with an educated guide. A lot of information about how to help others. Would recommend for adults as well. Parking can be difficult and is not free.
Inspiring stop In a contemporary architectural setting you can learn about the foundation scope, worldwide issues and contributions made toward mitigating those. Very educative experience
They do good, and important work here. The visitor's center has interesting and engaging displays to help you learn what kinds of things they do with the money.
WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! GREAT STAFF, EVEN THE GUARDS ARE FANTASTIC. THE GREETER...MEH NOT SO MUCH. HE DOES HAVE A GREAT MUSTACHE! GO SEE TONY!
