  • The visit for a photo in front of the garage where the whole story began in Silicon Valley is a must for anyone who loves technology and interest in the history of computing. The House is a common location, with a large flow of tourists in some timetables, located in a residential neighborhood, with beautiful views all around.

  • Hewlett Packard was founded and became the garage has been saved. That's not this garage, just looking from the outside at that features a monument, not related to the company and industry would just garage. However, it seemed to be where big business was born from these small garage, feel the American dream and the value.

  • It is very interesting house, and historical place.
  • Best garage I've seen all week. Too bad there was no gift shop, I need more fridge magnets.
  • Historical and beautiful. The neighborhood is classic Palo Alto
