The Intel museum is a very well presented and interesting stop in Silicon Valley. The displays and exhibits remind you very forcibly how far we have come in such a short period with computer chips. It demonstrates Moores' Law very well (Moore being one of the founders of the company. There is also a souvenir shop at the museum where... More

musuem is free and well organized. the content is a little bit dry but still interesting enough for an 30-60 minutes short visit. One definitely can see the glory past of this great company.

If you have never worked in a "fab" or worked in the semi-conductor field this is a nice museum of how a "wafer" is made. You can even try on a "bunny suit" to get a feel of how those of us in this field wear one every day for hours at a time. They have nice displays of how... More

I visited here during my holiday to San Francisco last year. Intel Museum is located in Silicon Valley, it is open weekdays and Saturdays to the public with free admission. It was a great place to visit where you can learn a lot of things about computer history, processor evolution, Intel's products history as well as semiconductor technology. The staff... More

This is a great little interactive museum at the Intel facility in Santa Clara. There is no fee and it explains the history of Intel as well as Intel products over time. It is a fun and educational experience.

If you are a computer / engineering techie, then this is the museum for you. Located on the Intel campus, the museum is free and there is free parking. We tagged along for a while with a student tour and found the tour guide to be quite entertaining and knowledgable; however, there was a lot of very technical stuff, so... More

The Intel museum is a great place to learn a lot about electronic manufacturing. Though they don't really reveal much, it is quite a lot of information for a person unfamiliar with electronics manufacturing. They have a lot of information which will be good to get kids interested into this field. Best of all, it is free.

I highly recommend the free tour to get the most out of this small museum. The material was well-presented and took about an hour to see the whole museum. Parking is free. Check the website and call before going because they do close for special events.

I know a lot about computer chips and admit I learned very little at this museum. But it's completely free with plenty of free parking. Easily worth a short visit of about 20 to 30 minutes or so.
