We visited the Nine Old Men special exhibit about Disney's early animators. Amazing detail presented in a logical way. The visitor learns exactly how the animators did what they did, why each man's contribution was important to the art of animation, and how innovative each...More
The in depth facts about Walt's life, including the world around him, are sure to teach everybody something new. From details about his lifelong love of trains, to the loss and eventual return of Oswald, or why he was a stickler about the parks being...More
I'm a huge disney can, so I knew this needed to be a stop. This goes through Walt's life with pictures and artifacts from his life. Lots of sketches he had drawn. The giant diaramma of Disneyland is really cool. We happened to go on...More
This is a beautiful museum and so well-designed and laid out for an informative visit about Walt Disney and the Disney Studios story. We enjoyed the interactive exhibitions.
It was a great story and it needs to be preserved and told. I would suggest this...More

Glad we returned 7 years since the last visit. Well worth it. The nine old men exhibition was fantastic and looking around the museum again was good as it had been refreshed since our last visit. Our little boy liked the videos throughout the galleries.
Visited the museum on a recent trip to San Francisco (10/2018). Did not know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. Not a large museum, but packed with more memories than can be imagined. The journey begins as soon as one enters. It zig zags...More
I especially enjoy this exhibit of Walt Disney the man behind the iconic "Disney Empire." As a bit of a history buff, I really enjoyed many of the memorabilia & early works of Disney and it's animators.
This beautiful museum in the Presidio gives a fascinating insight into the story of the man behind the mouse. It's a family museum and is an honest and heartwarming tribute to Walt Disney. There's everything here from family treasures, to storyboards, Academy Awards, rare films,...More

Also note that although it is named the Disney Family Museum it is not a "family" museum per se. Rather, it is a museum on Walt Disney's family. It is all reading exhibits and pictures of how Walt (and Roy) built the Disney brand largely from the viewpoint of his daughter Diane. I loved it, I don't recommend it for children, especially if they can't read.
