A compulsory stop for tech geeks - the Intel HQ. The museum covers the development of processors and has some nice old tech on display. The giftshop is you standard fare - mundane things with Intel logo. The museum is free and the employees there are happy to help. Send yourself an electronic postcard/selfie from one of the public computers!

Not only is this free, but it's also educational so you can learn more about computers if you know some, none, or a lot. There is staff happy to answer questions. They have some of the original computer components, which was a walk down memory lane. You can even try on a bunny suit...wow! Check this out if you are... More

This museum covers Intel's historical development of the computer chip. It provides the visitor with detail information, essentially from day one to the present, of the workings of the Intel chip. It has a few hands-on exhibits. If asked, they will provide a guided tour. Admission is free. It is mind boggling how much information/data can be handled by the... More

Not a big museum, but definitely informative. You'll see and read about the electronic things that Intel has produced since its establishment – memory, processors, chipsets, other chips. You'll also learn about modern technologies and what comes next.

If you happen to be around San Jose and you have heard of computers - just go there! The fantastic (but true!) story of making computer chips from the sand, general computer-related knowledge, entertainment for the geeks, their friends, parents and kids. There's also a store where you can buy various souvenirs both for you to remind you of your... More

Loved the fact that it was free and very informative of the coming of age of computers. I wished it was a larger tour area and would have loved to see employees in action.

I took my teenage son who is interested in these kinds of places to visit the Intel Museum. It’s totally not my bag but I’m going to do my best with the review from a non “tech-person” point of view. It’s very easy to find. It’s free to tour and has free parking. The gift shop is overpriced and almost... More

A small friendly museum. Admission is free. It has a comprehensive history of t he company and the products they made and make. I spend about two hours there. There is stuff to do so it is also suitable for children of around 10 years and older. In fact there was a school class when I was there. The staff... More

Intel has really established a one-of-a-kind museum in San Jose. You don't need to understand computers to enjoy the museum displays which trace the history of the company and its contributions to making computers such an important part of our lives. Junior high to high school students will be especially impressed--and probably amused at some of the early inventions which... More
