The Intel Museum, which is located in Silicon Valley, began its doors in 1983 to ensure that its history was accurate. According to the chipmaker, the museum is the only technology firm in the world that has an extensive educational material.
The museum was attracting around 85,000 visitors per year before being shut down due to the epidemic.
Liz Jones, an Intel historian, believes the idea of putting a digital model of the museum in the works for years. "Ideally, you would not need to physically visit our headquarters to see all of it," Jones said.
On International Museum Day (IMD), Intel announced the creation of a new virtual museum. It is intended to increase awareness about the importance of cultural exchange and promote cooperation and peace among individuals. IMD is held on or around May 18, and has started each year since 1977.
On Intel''s website, interested parties may stroll the virtual museum floor. If you''ve ever used Google Street View, you''ll feel at home with the interface. The physical Intel Museum may reopen as soon as July, according to authorities.
