This is a museum about Walt Disney not Disney land. Amazing. Inside the Presido which was a military fort. Also a great place to tour

I was rushed on my first visit so planned to return when we had more time. Arrived early on the... More

The Walt Disney Family (non-corporate!) Museum is a museum tribute to the life of Walt Disney, with a mixture of material from the personal family and material loaned from The Walt Disney Company archives. Although it has its fair share of memorabilia the creators succeeded in making this an engaging and interactive museum by filling it with films, recordings, and... More

The museum is the best laid out museum I have ever been too. The exhibits and the short movies,interaction and explanations, are just the right length. They have an excellent exhibit on the Disney Land creation. The staff is very informative and can answer questions about the man, and are truly a great addition to the museum. I would go... More

I liked this exhibit. Plan to spend at least 2 hours - you could spend days there if you read everything. It's all about Disney's life. It's not about mickey mouse or disney world, but a museum devoted to Disney and his creativity. It's very well put together and on beautiful grounds.

We were walking through the Presidio Park when we came across the Walt Disney Museum. The exhibit displays Walt Disney's family and his career. I learned that he has a Canadian connection. There's cartoons brought back memories. Upon leaving the museum, all of his Disney characters were crying to mourn his death. I enjoyed it and would have spent more... More

You do not need to be a kid to visit this museum. Interesting place for any age. It's just a recent history. Wanna save money? - Show your AAA card for a discount, also it possible to find some coupons in the internet.
