The museum is a great place for all ages, with hands-on/interactive displays. It walks you through Intel's innovative history. It is both historical along with educational. There are displays showing how wafers are made, bunny suits to try on, and information about the founders.

Wow, this place is a wonderful mini-capsule of the major influence Intel had on the blossoming of the personal computer age. All pc geeks and anyone one with enough curiosity about the genesis of the pc will love this petite museum. And the gift shop has a few fun items as well. Highly recommended.

An interesting tour of the beginnings of Intel from the first chip to a multinational business. Lots to see.

This corporate museum needs some updating but is still a very fun experience, and at no cost to the public. We enjoyed reading the history of Intel and seeing how the chip innovation has evolved over the years and, literally changed our lives. But, the most recent history is missing so I hope exhibit updates are in the works!

Curious about how semiconductors and technology? The Intel museum is like an expanded science fair project. Expect to learn something about the magic that makes all our devices work -- electronics, transistors, semiconductors, processors -- overlaid with a history lesson and some understanding about commerce and industry. This is not just a promotional corporate exhibit. You will see nicely done,... More

The topic might seem mundane but there is a lot of development history and interactive displays for families. Good for at least an hour.

Part of the corporate HQ, the guide in this small museum explains how chips are made and the history. You can also take photos of yourself in a 'moon suit', try on the 'clean room' clothes, visualize the tininess of the chip. Allow only about 30 minutes. The Computer History Museum in Mountain View is way more extensive, requiring several... More

It all depends on how interested you are in silicon and Intel's corporate propaganda. Mildly amusing.

Walk right in, friendly staff to help, free, but ask for a tour. Small room, but it has the history of Intel and all about chips. A little interactive with touch screens for more information. Gift store next door.
