New exhibits offer unique interaction with technology. A globe displaying real-time weather patterns, "binary rain" that falls into your hand, and the option to "get digitized" are just a few of the exciting new exhibit features that create a digital world at the Intel Museum. The exhibits take you from a rural classroom in South Africa to an online social networking environment. Along the way, you will experience exciting advanced silicon technologies while learning how Intel is helping to connect the next billion people to a world of opportunity through technology. New exhibits complement museum favorites, including the Intel History Timeline, Life in the Fab, Designing Chips, and the Robert Noyce exhibit. A visit starts at the Welcome exhibit, which features audio recollections of Intel as a startup and a snapshot of the company as the world's largest semiconductor chip maker, based on revenue.
Take a tour or explore on your own. Docent and self-guided tours are available for school-age children as well as adults. In addition to tours, museum maps in multiple languages provide a quick synopsis of each exhibit. Admission and parking are free.
