TOUR THE TECH

Intel museum with large digital displays

The history of high-tech is on display at the Intel Museum operated by, you guessed it, Intel, a company that puts the silicon in Silicon Valley. Exactly how technology works can be difficult to grasp, but here, the geniuses at Intel break it down in a visual, highly intuitive way. The 10,000-square-foot space is filled with fun, interactive exhibits. It's a great place to visit if you're curious about how silicon chips are made or where computers came from, as told at the home of one of the most prominent players in the industry. After a firsthand look at the blistering pace of innovation in the Valley, drop by the Intel Museum Store for a tech toy to take home. Aluminum solar charger, anyone?
