Showcasing our science, innovation and dedication

Located inside the Arnold Building on Fred Hutch’s Seattle campus, our Visitor Center opened its doors to the public in 2015 and serves as a place to display our research and build community through sharing stories.

Cures Start Here

Upon entry, visitors will see three panels, each with one word from our “Cures Start Here” tagline. The “cures” panel showcases our work, from bone marrow transplantation, which was pioneered at Fred Hutch, to cancer immunotherapy, a field where our researchers continue to make groundbreaking discoveries. The “start” panel explains basic sciences and the fundamentals of the research at the Hutch, and “here” displays information about our campus.

On the curving walls are hundreds of photos with messages left by patients, family members, researchers and others that encourage, inspire or remember. They wrap around the room like an embrace, each telling its own story.


Open to the Public

Weekdays 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. during regular campus hours. Complimentary admission.
