Great free museum on microprocessors and the history of Intel. Best part is how they are made, from actual farming of silicon crystal ingots. Of your into tech, it's a must see.

It's a very small museum. The giftshop is cool if you like to buy some Intel merchandise. Nice to get a fast & small history of computer chips. Cool interaction for kids.

the museum is quite small but good to go to. The museum is free and so is the parking. It was interesting to learn the history of Intel and tech.

Although the museum is farily small, we spent 2 hours walking through it. The screens that take you through each year detailing the business & technolocigal advances were well written and very informative. The examples of various chips, circuits and silicon were really interesting. We are so glad that we added this to our trip to the West Coast. I... More

This museum has FREE admission every day, it is the perfect size for 2-3 hours of exploring and learning the history of the microprocessor and how much technology has evolved in the past 50 years. Kids of all ages can interact with the exhibits.

We visited Intel's free museum. Parking is also free and close by to the small but interesting museum. This museum focuses on both Intel history and technology.

Awesome museum for families. Interactive and well done. Lots of information and you can really see just how far technology has come in a relatively short amount of time. This is a free venue.

I had about 1/2 an hour to kill after a business meeting at Intel and so I wanted to take a look around the Museum and Shop. This is a fascinating and very comprehensive history of Intel, its founders and the technologies they have developed that have helped shape the world of computing and communications over the last 4 decades....
