Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center

Free admission

Sleek and modern, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center is a free museum focused on global philanthropy, including the many projects and partnerships of the multi-billion dollar foundation. Across 5th Ave from the Space Needle and spread throughout the first floor of the organization’s operational headquarters, visitors can wander past glass partitions etched with inspirational slogans and informative photographic displays that educate and inform on topics like global poverty, universal access to fresh water, combating pervasive infectious diseases and other seemingly intractable problems. Even signs above the water fountains here, which read, ‘What if you had to walk three miles for this water?’ are thought-provoking.

The Center is divided into four distinct galleries – Voices, Family and Foundation, Partnerships and Innovation and Inspiration. Near the end, in the Innovation and Inspiration gallery, stations encourage visitors to react by sketching their causes and reflecting on their own passions. The Center also includes a small theater that shows short films on some of the foundation’s notable work including addressing homelessness in Washington state and profiling some individuals who have helped to make India polio-free.

Lonely Planet Experience: Seattle Private Walking Tour Best of Pacific Northwest

With stunning Puget Sound and Mt. Rainier as a backdrop, this private walking tour of Seattle offers so much more than the Pike Place Market and the Space Needle. Begin at Seattle’s Elliott Bay, where ferries run all day, with a stroll along its picturesque waterfront. Immerse yourself in the bustling Pike Place Market, where your guide will offer an orientation into its incredible food scene. Mix with the locals and enjoy a bite of whatever suits your fancy. Delight in the lower Queen Anne neighbourhood, with its impressive collection of historic homes. See glassblowers practicing their craft at Chihuly Gardens at the Seattle Centre. Learn about the impact the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has on the community in Seattle, with a stroll around its public campus. Finish the tour at the iconic Space Needle, with admission to the famous World’s Fair landmark, with sweeping views of the entire city and the surrounding area at the top.
