The Walt Disney Family Museum, a museum of dreams under the Golden Gate Bridge, takes us through the life of Walt Disney, one of the greatest men of the twenty-first century. There are seven dwarfs specially customized mini-golden statue awards, cut-out animation form about Walt's life film, countless interactive games, precious animation manuscripts and vintage Disneyland merchandise, as well as the 1955 Disneyland giant model, the beautiful world.
It's like a journey in time and space, witnessing every technological advance of Walt Disney and the visual art of creating new media. The museum will also show Disney movies of full length free of charge. Remember to wear shoes that are suitable for walking. There are many things to see here.
Who doesn't love Disney? If you are a Disney fan, this would be a place worth taking a look at. There is a lot of history here about the Disney family and how the Disney name become what it is today. If you are a bit older, you will probably appreciate it more than the little kids, but there is some here for all ages to see. If you are thinking of visiting the museum, take a look at the events calendar to see what special exhibits are current and upcoming. When visited, I was able to check out the Dali/Disney special exhibit which was pretty interesting. Also, when you buy your admission ticket, don't forget to ask for a movie ticket to their theater. The museum plays different movies each month in their small theater. The theater ticket is free and is given out on a first-come first served basis.
Walt Disney Family Museum is a well-known comprehensive museum in San Francisco. Relatives and colleagues will like it very much. It's a worthwhile trip for adults and children. We saw Snow White's performance. The theatre is very miniature, but it's very comfortable.
Disney is an iconic name and here you can learn about what brought Walt to be the person he was and how he created the magic. Truly a genius and a visionary, I learned so much about Disney. The special events or attractions they have are worth the few extra bucks as well and change over time.
A lovely and impeccably curated tribute to a man who shaped the way American's (and much of the world) entertain and vacation. Really great rotating shows and special engagements are not to be missed, in the museum's equally well appointed annex. It should also be noted that this museum was put together by the Disney family, not the Disney Company, and it's a noticeable distinction. Get into it. Get. Into. It.
If you admire Walt Disney for what he created for the world, this place will amaze and move you. It's as much an emotional experience as it is one both nostalgic and historic. When was the last time you went to a museum that had a proper pacing, where someone could spoil it for you if they revealed the surprise ending. This is such a museum.I'm really proud to have this museum in our city.
Located in the Presidio, this is a must see for anyone who loves Disney. You learn about Walt Disney's life, plus get a look at his work on several films, many of which have become classics. One of my favorite parts of the museum is a mini replica of the Disneyland park. There are also quarterly art installments that can be seen for $5 in addition to the museum admission price.
