Take your time (3+ hours if you can) while visiting this very detailed museum which chronicles the life of Walt Disney and his family. Many artifacts, including movie shorts, drawings, Academy Award statuettes, letters, and mementos, are put into the context of Disney's creative and business endeavors and tied in with American and world events during the 20th century. The temporary special exhibit about Mary Blair (scheduled to continue until September 7, 2014) was also well worth it as it provided an insight into the work of one of Disney's most significant artists.

We were going to golden gate park from palace of fine arts by car. Some buildings look beautiful and we stopped by there unexpectedly. The building was Walt Disney Family Museum. We had only two hours left in San Francisco and had to head to airport at that time. Two hours was not enough there!! There are a lot of things to take a look. This place was very impressive and interesting. I think it will take about 3-4hours for this place including special exhibition.

We were pleasantly surprised by this museum. This is a pretty extensive museum with a lot of background information about Walt Disney and his background. The exhibit is in chronological order starting with Walt's family heritage and leads you through the major stages of his life and professional success and failure stories. Not something for little kids necessarily, probably more suited for an older audience with a serious interest in the Disney story. There is a lot to see and read. The exhibit uses multimedia very well, you can access audio and video clips through tablets and touch screens. Everything worked excellent and we found it informative and entertaining.

It was great to truly track Walt Disneys life and how everything he did came to be. Great exhibits, lots of wonderful memorabilia in a sublime location overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge

I've been a fan of Disney since I was a kid watching the Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color. What an amazing experience for a fan of this man to spend hours in this museum. They do a great job going over every part of his life and they even tackle some issues that did not make him look very smart, such as the animator strike.

I learned so much today and wish I lived closer so I could go back and spend more time learning about this amazing man.
