Loved this little gem of a museum. It’s located in the beautiful presidio park. We took the free presidigo bus line to the museum. It’s not huge but lots of interesting facts about how Walt Disney got his start and about the man and his...More
I loved this museum, it’s a little bit out of the way, I used Lyft to get there. This museum isn’t owed by Disney, but set up by his daughter. There are lots of personal touches and I leaned a lot about Walt Disney’s life...More
On a recommendation from a couple of friends who wanted to see "Olie and Frank," we ventured to the Walt Disney Family Museum on a cold SFran afternoon. Lucky for us, it was Walt's B-Day, we all attendees received free entrance. Not much of a...More
Although it has a lot about Disneyland, this museum is really about Walt Disney before Disneyland. From Walt's earliest days until his death and everything in between. He was truly a pioneer in animation and frequently risked it all to reach the next milestone. After...More
If you enjoy Disneyland, you'll love this museum! Wonderful history, amazing sights, and thoughtful displays. We spent 2+ hours there but probably could have spent 3-4 hours if we really wanted to. Walt and family were giving, caring people. Quite a hidden gem. Highly recommend...More
We enjoyed our visit as followed the entire life story- from start to finish- of Walt.
A bit of a dreamer- he did an amazing job building an empire initially based on a mouse!
There are many short videos that add to the narrative- leave...More

Stay at any chain hotel in the Fisherman's Wharf, Embarcadero , Financial district. There is a free express shuttle bus to the Presidio that drops you off at the visitor center, about 100 yards from the museum. See this link>> presidio.gov/transportation/presidigo.
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.
