Educational, engaging, historic and relevant. If you are in the area I'd highly recommend taking an hour or so and walk through. The story and impact Intel has is incredible and the museum does a fantastic job illustrating this. There is so much more to say but stop reading this and simply put it on your list.

If you are a computer person and care A LOT about computer chips, this would be a really interesting museum. I guess. Because I'm not a techie, though, I was out of place and really didn't appreciate what I objectively know to be historically significant pieces of technological history. Was pretty dry, but was completely free, so worth a quick... More

They were so nice, it is small, no cost and they are so nice, if a group is there, there is a group activity you can watch sometimes. I would recommend it

The beauty of a free museum is that there is no risk to not liking the museum and wasting your money. This museum is free AND you will like it. Even if you are there with bus loads of Asian tourists. Excellent gift shop as well with many reasonably priced branded items. We were there for 1.5 hours.

Very interesting museum (specially for the geeks), exhibiting all things Intel (history, details about its founders etc). It's amazing to learn something from a company that literally has changed the world. It's not a big place, in one or two hours you can complete the tour. I'm not sure if non geeks would enjoy too much, though.

Took my soon to be seven year old through the museum. She could have been done in minutes. But we ended up spending a lot longer there. Its not large, but they pack a lot in. The center of the space is a class room. So we shared the museum with a couple of school groups. There is a lot... More

the (complimentary) museum showed a very interesting exhibition, I learned a lot about Intel and the history of computer chips. There is also the possibility to do some experiments. There was also a shop with nice T-shirts and other things, with a good price.

A few things you have to understand; there is a huge gift shop, there are some tour guides/information folks available; however this is a more of a company museum or display. If you live Intel, the intel commercials, the whole concept of clean labs and the power of the chip you may enjoy this. Children will be very bored unless... More

I just went solo to scope it out for my family (wife, sons ages 3 and 6, in-laws, and cousins also ages 3 and 6 at the time). In the end, they went to the San Jose science museum instead. Comparatively, the science museum was a much better choice for these younger kids with short attention spans, but I really... More
