Google search said average people spend 4.5 hours here. That seems to be overkill but it is worth spending an hour here to know about Intel and the world of semiconductors. Probably bigger time is for school students who come in groups.

Very cool and educating visit. Everyone knows chips come from wafers, but did you know wafers come from ingots and ingots from sand?! Well that's the kind of things u learn at the Intel museum. I've been to corporate museums at coke and P&G but this one by far is more engaging and fun. Well worth the time if in... More

This little museum gives a brief overview of Intel's history making integrated circuits. The displays fall into two categories - there are displays showing the variety of processors, controllers, etc. chips that the company has made over the years (4004, 8086, 80286, 80386, 80486, pentium, etc.) with some supporting displays showing hardware that these chips went into and some blowup...

Of the entire trip, we found the Intel Museum worth making the trip. The exhibits were well-organized with information about the past, present and future of Intel. Interactive exhibits also made the visit a little more interesting (read: spelling Kate’s name using binary) and there’s probably some cute shirts to be bought at the Intel store as well!

I was expecting a deeper learning experience. The museum, as others have stated, is quite small. It has a handful of interactive exhibits for younger kids and there was guides doing overtime with some scout groups, and they seemed to be enjoying it. But if you have even a basic grasp of computing then the museum simply becomes a timeline... More

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.

Surprisingly it was a quite a small area packed with loads of information. A bonus was it was a free entry, all i did was just look it up on things to do in my area via trip adviser. Intel played a key row in shaping todays technology

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
