Hi, i visited the "garage" in february. Don't expect an wow. it's a house on the street, like many other neighboring houses. Has that card saying about its history. At the time I was there, I could not enter the house or yard.
Instead of rocking out in a band, Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard started making oscillators out of this garage a short time after graduating from Stanford University in the 1930's. Famously, Disney asked Bill to make a few tweaks here and there to their existing models so that they could be used for the surround sound speaker systems in the... 更多
"Do we have to go and see a garage?", whined the kids? Yes we do. Like Star Tours in Hollywood you're just driving past a house--nay, garage--but it's not just any old house, or any old garage. Soak up what this garage represents. And when you're loving Downtown Palo Alto and all it has to offer thank Bill and Dave--and... 更多
Hewlett-Packard helped start my technology company in the '80s. It was important to stop streetside on a quiet morning and thank them again for the good life that they brought to my family and to many others.
It was very interesting to see the birthplace of Silicon Valley. To tour the house and garage, restored to era specific, was a great experience. To think that Silicon Valley was born in that house in garage was inspiring. A great experience.

After you do that, you'll be ready to move on. You can't go inside so you'll only see what's... 更多
Seeing the actual garage just makes the legend more real. The fact that it's nothing to see really--just a garage--is fascinating. Of course, it's in Palo Alto, so it's in a beautiful neighborhood.
It is not exactly a fantastic place, but it is so close to the main street, so it is worth walking by to see where the Silicon Valley started.
This is the original garage at 367 Addison Avenue in Palo Alto where David Packard and Bill Hewlett began their early endeavors that eventually lead to the founding of Hewlett Packard.Corporation. The house and garage were bought by HP when Carly Fiorina was CEO to be able to ensure it would be preserved. It is now a duplex and one... 更多
I grew up around the corner. I get that this garage is historical but the constant passersby on this little neighborhood street who want to come and stare at it, is sort of ridiculous. It's just a garage, you can't go in. It's not a museum. People live there. Really, it's not worth it. Look at the picture posted above... 更多
