Intel Museum Reviews & Ratings
in the heart of Silicon Valley, in the midst of many other world-famous companies, this very large structure is certainly noteworthy. Here is Intel's technical office but also a beautiful museum in which to retrace the history of processors and the company that made history over the past 51 years. Absolutely not to be missed, I recommend to all especially to computer technicians and technology experts this training course. Go there in the morning or early afternoon, you will be visiting here for about 2 hours at most :)
Nice place to visit with kids and students. The museum is free and welcomes class field trips. Great idea to bring in the community and educate others about the beginning of the computer chip. Maybe it will inspire future engineers.
Bit disappointing that it was a very small place considering 60years of pathbreaking innovation even eclipsing other more established companies of its era. I expected it to be much bigger in size. Anyway it did offer a very quick and short history of all key milestones at Intel and also provided a brief glimpse of the personal history behind Gordon Moore and Robert Noyce. They also had a souvenir shop with a lot if trendy and contemporary products with Intel branding.
Nice overview of processor industry history. A lot can be learned for beginners. But also, experience visitors will have what to look and learn. There is also nice shop with quality products on moderate prices. Admission is free, that was nice and should stay like that.
This is a fun little museum. It's free. It has exhibits relating to the founders of Intel and how Intel manufactures silicon chips. They had some old fossils -- 486 chips and a calculator that went back some years--- that brought back a little nostalgia. The kids who were visiting appeared to enjoy the exhibits --- particularly the clean room garb. I'm not a techie, and there was a little too much detail on some of the exhibits. But there were some interesting gadgets in the store, including a pad that helps to keep my cell phone on my car's dashboard.
