The Walt Disney History Museum is a wonderful museum dedicated to the life and times of Walt and his family, business associates, friends, etc. The family has put on display many objects and artifacts from his lifetime, beginning at birth until his death. As you wander though the museum, each room is a different period of time in his life. There are photo and video exhibits, many of which he narrates, all about his family, his growing up, military service, how he got into animation, business pursuits. How the studios he owned came to be, successes and failures. There are beautiful exhibits on how the animated movies were made, the equipment he and his studio invented for the movies. An exhibit of how Mickey Mouse was created, along with a display of antique Mickey Mouse characters. There is a history of all the early movies along with how the characters and movie were created. Each with original models of the characters. A walkway through his television shows with old TV sets showing the old shows. A model of Disneyland and the hows and whys of it's creation, same for other Disney parks. It was a fascinating view into the life and times of Walt Disney. Walt Disney Family Museum
