Fun to see and appreciate what the foundation is doing. I am very happy that my daughter and I decided to go in and check it out.

A visit to the public tour area gives insights into the remarkable projects supported by the Gates Foundation. The tour guides are knowledgable and the displays are professionally organized. I learned a lot

We only had a short time to visit this FREE museum and wish we had so more time to invest. It is small, but mighty in its mission and vision. Very inspiring and wish more company executives would follow what Bill & Melinda Gates have done here and around the world.

We were visiting Seattle to see our son who lives there. I was drawn to visit because I have always been impressed that Bill and Melinda Gates donate so much time and money to countries that do not have the resources to help themselves. I was bowled over by my day at this venter. It made me realize that one person can make a difference. Now I’m inspired to try in my own community.They have a lot of ideas and creative ways to make the visitor figure out what we can do. Very interactive. Loved the waterless toilet. Learned a lot about disease prevention and how much difference a 50 cent donation can make in a developing region. Very well done ....especially Maria who provided our initial tour of the facility yesterday
