If you are an IT engineer, you'd better visit here at once. You can learn about Intel's history, the history of semiconductors, and the history of microprocessors. It is a 50-year evolution of information technology. There are also many souvenirs and you can have fun.

Going inside the Intel museum is fascinating. You'll learn the history of the integrated circuits (IC) inventions up to the latest generation IC development. Great history lessons to everyone. And, it's free!
