Interesting but way too short. Could have show more of how their products effect everyone and more about the history of the co-founders.

It's a treat for techies but very boring if you ain't into tech big time.ok it's Intel so it's expected to be all of chip related and how the discovery was made but some fun element in form of interactive session could've been good. Easily accessible and well structured.

If you get attached to a tour, it's a good way to have a quick, informative interview without having to read every detailed sign. But the details are there for those who wish.... More

The Intel Museum shows the history of Silicon Valley. They have an amazing collection of the key innovations since the invention of the silicon chip.

The museum is the only place one can visit. The displays are too generic. There is also a small store where you can buy souvenirs. There is no manufacturing at this site and all buildings are for employees only.

Bright and clean, offering a history of Intel, its products and people. A very interesting and well put together visitors centre. Allow about 30 mins to walk around - it's not a big place but if you're 'into' technology then it's worth dropping by to see the old and new stuff, like the Altair 8800 computer that kick-started Bill gates'...

ツアーで訪問しました。 インテル社の歴史や昔の製品がコンパクトに紹介されており、興味深い内容が凝縮されています。 館の名前にもなっている、Noyseさんの娘さんの言葉、「He never watched sports on television or read about others adventures. Hew was too busy pursuing adventures of his own.」には、自分もこうありたいモノだ、と胸を打たれました。 近くに行かれる方は、是非一度足を運んでいただきたいですね。

Cute little corporate museum with some interesting displays and history of Intel. You can breeze through in 20 minutes or an hour, if you read everything. Worth going for the gift shop (Cool Intel merchandise).
