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

A small tech museum in Silicon Valley close to the new San Francisco 49er stadium is open to the public 5 days a week with no admission charge. 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

I would highly recommend stopping by the Intel Museum. The place is packed with information and little activities for kids to do and learn from. It's an amazing place to learn about the development of the company and actually see how a microprocessor works/looks etc. I recommend it.

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.
