What a treasure trove of interesting Disney history. We have returned several times. They offer scheduled Disney movies and more primary source material on Disney than a visitor can absorb in one visit. From old letters to movies, all is presented in an interesting fashion and worth all the time spent. Recommend comfortable shoes. Two hours in any museum is... More

This museum has a lot to offer especially for Disney Fans who want to know more about Walt, Roy, their family's history. There is a good overview of how the business developed over time. The museum offers the family's perspective of the evolution of the company and Walt's vision as well as the trials and tribulations they went through as... More

I liked this place, they had a film recently on him which covered some of the same ground. I really liked the multi plane camera.

This place is a great history location for all you need to know about walt disney. The only constructive advice I have, too much reading and an overkill of displays. Instead of making visitors read all this material which they otherwise could do in a library or online, why not add some more interactive displays and show more of walt... More

This Museum wasn't what I'd expected. It's not owned by the Disney Corporation and gives an interesting trajectory of Walt Disney's journey. We specifically saw an exhibit that outlined the making of Pinocchio.

We spent a rainy Saturday at the Disney Family Museum. What a spectacular tribute to the Disney Family. We learned so much from this walk through tour. There is so much information and personal letters as well as recordings from Walt, Roy, etc. It was truly wonderful to go through the journey of their lives with them. This exhibit brought... More

Overall, this experience is interesting and worthwhile; however, I believe the entrance fee is a bit steep for what you are experiencing. Additionally, I found the gift shop to be a bit disappointing given the extensive merchandise typically sold by Disney.

We really enjoyed this museum. It was quiet the day we went which was nice. Being Disney fans we were not disappointed, learning about Walt and the family, seeing early work, finding out the story of how it came to be and the difficulties they had along the way - it was fascinating.

My husband and I spent an afternoon here, it's a great way to learn the history of Walt Disney and his family, as well as history of animation and the art of film making. There was a special exhibit about Pinocchio, which was very educational and entertaining. This museum is not for small children, I would say 10 and up.... More
