I spent several hours here and barely saw a third of it. It was probably the most interesting museum I've been to. I plan to return someday to see the rest of it. Please do not bring children to this venue. It isn't designed for their entertainment and they will get bored. They will feel disappointed and you will feel... More

I love this Museum. I could spend hours there. There is so much to see and do. Any Disney fan would be in heaven there, trust me I am a huge Disney nerd! One of my favorite things is the huge model of Disneyland. The last room in the Museum is gorgeous and has made me cry both of the... More

Lots of Disney memorabilia, special exhibits, etc. If you are a Disney "fan", plan on spending a LOT of time here. Great place!

I was skeptical about going to this museum - it was not easy to get to using mass transit and it is fairly expensive at $20 per person. The first room or two I was even more skeptical as the information seemed to be info I could get from Wikipedia. The rest though? Blew me away. It made me realize... More

So much deeper than we expected - a multi-media presentation of an American icon. Printed panels, audio, and video all contribute to a great presentation. I have a much greater appreciation for his genius and passion. We spent 2.5 hours absorbing the galleries, and probably only took in a third of the information - we were trying to keep moving....

Reminiscent of an American presidential library, the Walt Disney Family Museum boasts a vast displayed collection of archives and primary source materials concerning the life, artistry and business affairs of the great Walt Disney. Arranged chronologically, the museum focuses on Walt's artistic (/business) career and it does so in a manner that is both fascinating and undeniably impressive. (Relying on... More

A beautiful location, near the Golden Gate Bridge. Be sure to enjoy the view from the floor to ceiling windows in the back of the museum. A legacy to Walt Disney, his family and achievements.

If you like Disney's movies you will enjoy this museum, give it at least 2- 3 hours visit The museum's location is a little bit far from down town, near golden gate bridge, about 15 minutes drive by taxi and cost...

This museum gives you such an in depth look into Walt Disney's life from his birth to his death. It features so many things related to both his movies & the Disneyland park & includes a short movie (included in price but you do have to get a time from the ticket desk). When we were there the film was... More

What a talent and gift to us. Everything from the early "Steamboat Willy" to Mickey, his friends, the theme parks and the movies. A very accessible venue with more info than you ever knew about Walt, his family, and the genius of his many inventions.
