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

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.

The museum is not that big but it's packed with fun, interesting and interactive displays, and it's free. We spent about an hour there. There's also a small gift shop with some great nerdy t-shirts. Highly recommended!

We have been here twice on school field trips, however it is open to the public. It is a very informative museum, kind small in size but packed with a lot of information and hands activities. For school field trips they have a classroom where the kids are led by one of the Intel Tour Guides on how to code... More

Although there is a a museum which is really interesting there is a lot to know about Silicon Valley. Practically built on companies like Intel.
