The Intel Museum (http://www.intel.com/museum/index.htm). This is where our exhibit is on display
The Computer History Museum (http://www.computerhistory.org/) This is where I spoke on Monday 11/13/2006. They gave us access to an engineering prototype of the Busicom 141-PF calculator so we could extract the software from the ROMs.
Federico Faggin (http://www.intel4004.com) Intel 4004 co-inventor and chip designer. He served as an advisor during the early stages of the museum project.
Masatoshi Shima (http://www.v-t.co.jp/jp/support/column/shima_column_main.php) the only non-Intel co-inventor, working for Intel's client Busicom (aka NCM), he was the overall systems designer for the calculator, and he was a very significant contributor to the final 4004 architecture. He also wrote all the calculator software.
Fred Huettig (http://www.starboarddesign.com/) designed the electronics for the 4004 exhibit.
Brian Silverman (http://www.picocricket.com/) and his brother Barry Silverman reverse-engineered the 4004 from the schematics as well as the Busicom calculator software from the binaries.
Christian Bassow (http://www.cpu-museum.com/) collects chips and old calculators and runs a "virtual" CPU museum. He sent me photographs of the printed circuit board inside the Busicom calculator.
John Weinrich (http://mywebpages.comcast.net/jsweinrich/) built a 4004-based tic-tac-toe game. He sent me a bunch of the technical documentation on the 4004.

Prof. William Aspray (http://www.informatics.indiana.edu/people/profiles.asp? u=waspray) has researched the history of the 4004 extensively and conducted first-hand interviews with its inventors. His Masatoshi Shima oral history interview offers a Japanese perspective on the 4004 development. Aspray's journal article "The Intel 4004 Microprocessor: What Constituted Invention?, published in the IEEE Annals of the History of Computing, Vol. 19, No. 3 (1997) gives a great overview of the historical context and considers whether the birth of the microprocessor was a revolutionary or evolutionary milestone in the history of technology.
