Walt Disney Museum and special exhibit.

Wonderful museum. Covers so much of the history of Walt Disney from his early beginnings to present. Wonderful that it has a nice home in the Presidio. We also did the special exhibit which closes in January. Well worth the time and the price.

The beginning of the museum says the average visitor spends two and a half to three hours at the museum. We were there seven hours! Fascinating looks at one of our American icons of ingenuity. It was also great to see actual examples of the equipment developed by Disney and his company that advanced the development of animated film, like the multiplane film machine.

Our whole family absolutely loved this Museum. You really need a full day to fully explore all of what is on offer at this beautiful Museum, don't let the outside deceive you, this it is HUGE!. Loved seeing all the old family videos of the Disney family, hearing their voices telling their stories. If you love Disney this is a must see Museum while you are in San Francisco!

This is the 2nd time I have been to the Walt Disney Family Museum 4 years apart and the 2nd time was just as good. There is so much to see you could go every couple of years and still see new things. The displays are informative and interesting, you can easily spend 3-4 hours there. There is easy timed parking around the museum and if the fog cooperates, a great view of the Golden Gate.

This tour definitely met the expectation of understanding so much more about Walt Disney, the man and the company. It doesn't seem possible given how long this company has been in existence. The personal correspondence about copyright issues, strategy for testing new animation is so detailed, as well as the labor strikes are very insightful. The old memorabilia exhibit is great. Walt Disney's very early animated images and his wartime involvement was also unexpected. And if that wasn't all the setting of the museum is breathtaking. We were blessed with a great, sunny 70 degree day.
