Bill And Melinda Gates Foundation Visitor Centre Reviews & Ratings
Love how they obviously are trying to inspire others to assist in making the world a better place. I appreciate how positive they are about breastfeeding and highlight how healthy it is for mom and baby! I hope they focus their resources on sanitation and hygiene efforts and less on vaccines. As a medical professional and childbirth educator I would love to be involved in assisting women in other countries have healthier pregnancies and deliveries as well as making it even better in the United States. Thank you for all you guys do Bill and Melinda.
One of the best educational and extremely well presented places we have ever visited. Born and grew up in Seattle but retired in Palm Springs, I’ve known Gates and endeavors quite well. We definitely will be back to absorb more and see the outstanding difference he and Melinda’s team makes every day. Very proud to have known and his mom and dad’ work here!
Fascinating and informative. If you like learning about innovation and how innovation can help improve people’s lives, this is a great place to go. I spent 2 hours here enjoying reading about various innovations (from portable water filter to vaccine insulators) and the populations who are now using them. It was eye opening. Don’t miss the bathrooms, where you can enjoy some eye opening sanitation facts. All in all, I came out more informed and motivated. Two thumbs up.
In my opinion everyone who is in or visits Seattle, this is a MUST stop. Since we had limited time we had to choose between this and the Needle. We feel nothing could have surpassed what we experienced at this wonderful place. So very thankful for the legacy they have created for so many who will never meet the Gates, but their lives will be impacted. Thank you Melissa and Bill for choosing to do such good in this world.
I wanted to visit The Foundation, after reading “The Moment of Lift” and I already awared of what is happening here. I saw with my own eyes what kind of things are being accomplished and still continuing. I loved the invention’s of South African people’s to make their life easier. This place has given so much inspiration, information and creativity. Everything is designed so creatively and engaging. There is guided tour at 2 pm and it was pretty busy. I really loved this place and their effort is making the world a better place!
