There is stuff to do so it is also suitable for children of around 10 years and older. In fact there was a school class when I was there. The staff... More

Intel has really established a one-of-a-kind museum in San Jose. You don't need to understand computers to enjoy the museum displays which trace the history of the company and its contributions to making computers such an important part of our lives. Junior high to high school students will be especially impressed--and probably amused at some of the early inventions which... More

Free Admission! My teenage sons loved this museum and I found the exhibits to be very informative. Staff was very friendly and were very helpful. You will need 1 - 2 hours to visit this museum.

We were taken on visit through the Intel story from when the first processor chip was produced and how things have evolved to the modern world of today. It was amazing to see how instrumental Intel has been to the development of the computer age as we know it today. I was also able to take a picture of myself... More

We arrived around the time the museum was opening. Absolutely no crowd to hamper our ability to read information and try interactive items. Museum does a great job detailing the history of Intel and the computer industry in general. GPS took us to Intel HQ instead of museum. Called museum and they guided us to their parking lot. Parking and... More

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
