Learn About Technology at the Intel Museum in Santa Clara

May 02, 2016

Ever wanted a behind-the-scenes look at the technology that powers Silicon Valley? Look no further – the Intel Museum in Santa Clara offers 10,000 square feet of learning for people of all ages.

When you visit the museum, not only will you find interesting facts about technology – you’ll be able to participate in interactive learning activities (like a display that lets you spell out your name in binary code!).

By the time you’ve walked through the facility, you’ll have learned all about how a chip is made, the history of the personal computer, and the semiconductor industry.

The best part?

The museum is completely free. That’s right – free parking, free admission, and free tours (as long as you request in advance)!

If you’re a die-hard Intel fan, you can also pick up some swag in the museum gift shop – they’ve got t-shirts and plenty of other items for you to choose from.

With solid reviews on both Yelp and TripAdvisor, you won’t want to miss this exciting Santa Clara attraction. They’re open from 9AM to 6PM during the week and 10AM to 5PM on Saturdays. However, they sometimes close the facility to the public for special events, so make sure you call before you plan your visit.

If you do decide to visit, don’t forget to take a picture with the giant Intel logo in front of the museum! That way, you’ll always be able to remember your trip.
