Today, the Intel Museum takes on a new form. In addition to the physical Intel Museum in Santa Clara, California – which is currently closed, but could reopen as soon as July – people can now visit the new virtual Intel Museum from anywhere around the globe. The 3D interactive tour lets visitors virtually stroll the museum floor, interact with exhibits and explore exclusive virtual museum content. 

Liz Jones, Intel’s historian, oversees the Intel Museum and says that idea of a digital home has been in the works for years – even before COVID-19 closures shuttered the brick-and-mortar museum at Intel’s world headquarters in Santa Clara.  

“Ideally, you wouldn’t need to physically visit our headquarters to experience all the museum has to offer,” Jones said.  

Intel is the only technology company in Silicon Valley with a public museum dedicated to teaching visitors about the company’s rich history and the science behind its technology. Opened in 1983 to ensure Intel’s history was recorded accurately, the Intel Museum (pre-pandemic) averaged 85,000 visitors a year.
