The kids really enjoyed walking around and seeing this museum. It isn't a place you need to plan on spending a long time, but they have some hands on activities and it kept the kids entertained when we had a few hours to kill.

If you are an IT engineer, you'd better visit here at once. You can learn about Intel's history, the history of semiconductors, and the history of microprocessors. It is a 50-year evolution of information technology. There are also many souvenirs and you can have fun.

Going inside the Intel museum is fascinating. You'll learn the history of the integrated circuits (IC) inventions up to the latest generation IC development. Great history lessons to everyone. And, it's free!

No manufacturing tour but they explain the production process and have some models and photos and videos. The tour guides are very informative. You can walk through yourself but you will get a lot more out of it if you go on... More

It's free to visit and walk around. They have guided tours as well but they fill up quickly.
