The Computer History Museum is definitely more of a “Must See” compared to the Intel Museum. It is much larger and comprehensive, as the Intel Museum is more focused on one aspect of computing, the integrated circuit.

The Intel Museum is always free, and I got free admission to the Computer History Museum through Bank of America’s Museums on Us program.
