Small, free, museum about the development of Intel. My son is very interested in technology, so we stopped in for a visit. Interesting to see the development of the technology, and the people involved. Nice displays and information, and some interactive stations.

Intel has done a very good job of providing the public with an understanding of processors and how they relate to development of modern technology. I was impressed by the company's leadership, development, and staff friendliness.

This FREE museum is located in the Intel campus. It is small but very informative with interactive exhibits. Not sure parents with toddlers would enjoy but since it's free a short visit is ok. Highly recommend.

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