I attended a conference at the Computer History Museum in September. The conference venue was great for a small conference (~600 people). We spent about an hour walking through the displays at the museum during the one of the breaks (although it could have easily...More
I was truly overwhelmed by this place and wish I'd set aside more time. The docent led tour could have been a TED talk on computing history, it was that good. I wish I'd noted his name but I have a sense that all the...More
I spent about 4 hours there. I was involved from 1979 until 1992 in the computer industry so it was a great walk down memory lane. I was glad I went by myself as I think my wife would have been ready to leave in...More

The Computer History Museum is definitely more of a “Must See” compared to the Intel Museum. It is much larger and comprehensive, as the Intel Museum is more focused on one aspect of computing, the integrated circuit. The Intel Museum is basically one big room, whereas the Computer History Museum has many rooms, floors and wings. The Intel Museum does have a couple of interactive activities, though. The Intel Museum is always free, and I got free admission to the Computer History Museum through Bank of America’s Museums on Us program.
