Museum is located in a wonderful, less frequented area of SF. The area has nice open space with great views of the bridge and Alcatraz. Perfect setting for a very well-laid out tribute to Walt E. Disney. This is not a "Disney" experience but a well organized museum not only of Disney but of the evolution of animation and entertainment.... More

Ok maybe I'm a big Disney fan, with having a Disney time share, but even someone who is not too kean on Disney must do this. It's an easy walk through the museum and the end is the best! Give yourself at least three hours if you want to take it all in. Smaller children may not ba able to... More

The Walt Disney Museum is like going through a time tunnel of Walt Disney's. It was interesting but I think more for adults than children. We really enjoyed it.

First, this is not for those who have just a little or no interest in Walt Disney. The museum follows his life from birth to death with much of the history of animated film in between. The museum is well laid out in chronological order. There are stills and short film pieces to demonstrate each part of Disney's life. They... More

The building is deceptive from the outside. So much more behind the man is displayed at this museum. It is from the family perspective so it is personal. Not necessarily a place to bring young children. It is more for adults who grew up with Disney.

The Walt Disney Family Museum is a great place to learn more about the Man the created the mouse. We anticipated our visit for many years...and because of this we expected a lot more. It isn't for every Disney fan, but worth the visit if you have the time...and a coupon.

This was an incredible find and a place you could lose yourself in for hours. Fascinating insight to Walt Disney and his trials and tribulations into creating cartoons that have become part of all our lives. Take the time out to go and visit but be prepared to spend at least 2 to 3 hours wandering around.

We took in the Mary Blair exhibit, and it was well worth the price of admission. The main exhibit was huuuuge! There is a bit of a backlog at the beginning, as everyone tries to read every single bit of information. As people make their way through, they tend to skip over more stuff, a spread out more. Honestly, if... More
