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.

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.

Neat place. Lots of neat exhibits and things to read about with regard to the technology industry history and where things are at today. Neat little shop as well. If you have an hour and are into technology, you will likely enjoy it.

We dropped by the Intel Corp and Museum after visiting Stanford University. The Intel Museum is located in the lobby of the Intel Corp office complex. It is a very small but interesting museum. It is a modern museum with interactive displays that show the history and development of the computer chip This is not a dusty display of old... More

It gives a nice history of Intel and its founders along with a lot of information about the numerous Intel products which have made Intel such a successful company. It is a... More
