Without Intel, there would have been no Microsoft or Apple, I worked for Intel and was by far, the best professional corporation I ever worked for.

My college freshman son was most intent on visiting this museum. But the whole family enjoyed the short (45 min?) tour that was easily understandable to everyone. They made it easy to learn a lot quickly in this museum.

We traveled a long way to visit this museum, only to find it was very small. Very inspirational for its size. You won't need too much time to see this one. It's free. The gift shop is sparse. There is no food. The Intel sign in the courtyard next to the best picture.

First, can't complain about free but be aware this is a very small attraction. A local friend took me to visit over lunch. If you have people in your party that are interested in this kind of history they would enjoy the visit. Has the history of the Intel founders, exhibits of early inventions, ect. Nice and quick and informative.... More

This museum is a bit small but does a good job explaining how it evolved and continues to evolve. We had a very good tour director who explained what Intel does very well. If you are in the area its worth taking a look at,

When with my younger kids who didn't seem that interested in it. They walked through quickly and didn't hold attention. But they were 7 and under. I found it very informative, interesting and interactive. It gives details of how chips are made, the history of Intel and computers. Techies and older kids would like it. None techies and little kids... More

It was a nice visit but I have to admit I expected a lot more. Intel, one of the founding companies of the tech revolution. They could have made it a little bigger. I guess I cannot complain since it is free, so I definitely got y money's worth.

You would think this would be more kid oriented to promote education in technology, but it is more an intro college course into technology. Kids were expecting more and were disappointed.
