Delivered the magic of my childhood. But Walt and Roy had, like most small businesses, tough going many times. Artifacts, films and clips, games, and lots more make it really fun. We spent 4 hrs and I was on a knee scooter 🛴 totally worth...More
Interesting museum. Lots of really good detail and info about the family and Walt's life. Lots also about the animation and film process - if you're not into that, it might be a little much. Worth a visit. Took the shuttle from downtown to the...More
The museum is housed in historical buildings within the San Francisco presidio, no small feat to preserve the old facades and build modern museum galleries inside. The permanent space is an in depth experience-rich narrative of Walt Disney's creative life as one of the most...More
We are huge Disney fans. We’ve had Disneyland annual passes as much as we haven’t, even though we live 6.5 hours away on a good traffic day. We all felt that the museum is fantastic.

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.
