  • I enjoyed the stories and multi-media exhibits. You can spend a few minutes or hang out for a while. Quiet space.  more »
  • Interesting displays and information. If you are near the Space Needle definitely worth stopping in for 30 minutes.  more »
  • Tour explains what the foundation does with their money and how they decide which projects to pursue and support. It's interesting and you can easily get on a little tour then go home and explore more...  more »

  • The visitors' center has an extensive display of educational and informational materials, detailing the work of the foundation, and providing opportunities for thoughtful discussion, community input and especially education for younger generstions. It is laid out in 4 main sections, and has both enough material to satisfy a long visit, while also having concise enough displays to be conducive to short stays. Joining one of the guided tours is a great way to learn. Perhaps best of all, admission is free!
  • Changing the world. If you are in Seattle, you should come to visit the foundation. Very humbling and an inspiration to be here. Activities for children as well!
  • This is a very impressive building. It isn't huge by any means but very well put together and interactive. The mission of foundation is to inspire others to serve and I was truly inspired when I visited this building.
  • Really great interactive exhibit. The whole space is gorgeous and very informative, kids love it too because you can touch pretty much everything. It display the work the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has been supporting around the world. And it is free to visit.
  • A must go! The foundation does a lot of great work as shown in the exhibits. Best of all, it's free!

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
