  • In the first, the receptionist was guided to the restroom. There is also a drinking area and Wi-Fi. It was unexpected because it was heard that the communication fee was too high and the communications charge was serious in the United States travel, but the exhibition understood the meaning of the true. It is difficult to obtain sanitary toilets and drinking water in the majority of the world. Infectious diseases, poverty, child labor, and hence the low literacy rate and the information gap.... The explanation is in English, but there is an exhibition method of convincing unintentionally, such as the experience of lifting the water which is necessary for one day (the weight corresponding to the bucket which contains), and the mechanism of the restroom which can be used permanently without electricity and water, and the idea to solve the problem of the world is clogged. You don't need to book or pay to see the exhibits. I want many people to see it.

  • One of the most underrated spots in all of Seattle. If you're a forward thinker and want to learn about how the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is changing the world with the support of its many partners and employees, this place is not to be missed. Centrally located near Seattle Center but away from the CBD, you can experience a medium sized gallery divided up in to 4 large sections. Every section captures your attention with audio/visual presentation and many hands on exhibits to allow visitor interaction. Highly recommend checking out this place whether you're young or old, in a group or alone. Tours at 2pm from Tuesday-Saturday.
  • A very cool and inspiring center. I really enjoy their food at their cafeteria. Just amazing projects, people, and food.
