Walt Disney Family Museum, San Francisco

4.6
Walt Disney Family Museum presents the life, work, and legacy of Walt Disney, from his early childhood until today. In a 4,000 sq m (43,000 sq ft) space, using old and new technology, the family's collection showcases drawings, animations, movies, and music. In the lobby are 248 awards Disney earned, among which are the Presidential Medal of Freedom--the highest civilian award of the United States--and the Oscar for the movie "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves." See the 3.7 m (12 ft) in diameter model of Disneyland, and watch Disney classics in the "Fantasia"-inspired digital theater. Make sure you have some energy left for the Disneyland exhibit at the end.

  • Super cute museum in the Presidio that is a must-visit for Disney fans! The museum is two floors high and quite wide across. There are elevators and ramps so the museum is handicap and kid-friendly. Due to the location, one part of the museum has a stunning view of the Golden Gate Bridge. The museum has a good mix between art pieces and interactive pieces. I loved that the museum is set up in a sequential timeline of Walt Disney's life. The rooms are set up so you follow one path to understand Walt's ambitions and dedication to his business. Don't want to ruin the experience, but I will say my friends and I had all sorts of feels leaving the museum.
  • We had some downtime on a trip to SF last weekend. We had done a lot of the "touristy" stuff one does there and we stumbled upon the Walt Disney Family Museum. We didn't expect much but were totally surprised at how great it was...at least if you enjoy Disney history. I'm not sure this is a place I'd bring young children as it would likely be boring for anyone under the age of 10 or 12. We really loved the chronological way the museum is laid out culminating in an amazing, detailed model of Disneyland showing all the attractions that Walt had a hand in. What a great find!
