Owner description: We’ll be closed for renovation starting June 15. The Company Store is the original Apple Employee store located at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino. We are open to the public, but we are a little different than your local Apple Retail Store. While we don't sell computers, iPhones or have a Genius Bar, we are the only place in the world that sells Apple logo t-shirts, caps and accessories. So, if you find yourself in the San Francisco Bay Area, please stop by and visit us.

The first computer I ever used was an Apple IIe. I'm writing this from an iPad as my wife surfs on her Mac Book Pro. Saw the movie, "Jobs," just a few days ago, just a few miles from here. Being where the Mothership docks was way cool! I'm about as far from a computer nerd as you can get, but I loved perusing the shirts - if only there had been an XXL 'The Joy of OS X' tee-shirt! For those of us who learned the joys of a personal computer because of this company's genius, a quick visit here is time well spent. Just be aware this isn't a tourist trap. This is the fully functioning real thing. With tee-shirts. And a cool coffee mugs.

As other reviewers already mentioned, there is not much to see. They don't even have a big Apple logo on their HQ building for photo opportunities. Their on-site store is ok, but with the exception of some fanboy stuff like Apple branded T-shirts, not much different from other Apple stores.

If you are in the area and have time to spare, it's ok to go there, just to say you've been there. But definitely not a tourist attraction per se.

There is absolutely nothing to see. Just a commercial building for minting money. I cant believe trip advisor is actually nominating this as an attraction. Stay away

We did not have a contact at apple to get a tour of the facilities so we decided to stop at the company store. It was fun to go! It was a quick stop and we were able to get some apple apparel. Kids are excited to have a unique souvenir.

The Apple Computer building is beautiful and very modern. They have their own Apple Store in the premises that sells all kinds of Apple gadgets, computers, souvenirs, clothes and more. Great place to visit is if you are an Apple Computer lover!
