The Walt Disney Family Museum
You don’t need to go to Los Angeles to get a dose of Disney. The Walt Disney Family Museum is located right here in the Bay Area at 104 Montgomery Street at the Presidio in San Francisco. The museum is a non-profit established by the celebrity’s daughter, and, although it is not affiliated with the Walt Disney Company, it’s a must-see for any fan.
Well over 200 of Disney’s awards are displayed within the lobby. Interactive exhibits offer animation opportunities. Adults and children alike will enjoy the movies and music, the sights and sounds. The Fantasia-themed theatre is many guests’ favorite, while others buzz about the Lilly Belle locomotive. The museum tells the story of Walt Disney and much more.
There are several permanent exhibits at this museum, and current special exhibits include Disney and Dalí: Architects of the Imagination. Did you know that Walt Disney and Salvador Dalí were dear friends? And, in the mid 40’s, the two worked together on an animated short.
Another special exhibit is Tomorrowland: Walt’s Vision For Today. Be aware, this exhibit ends on December 7th of this year! So, now is the time to visit. The focuses of this event include the icon’s interest in science fiction, technology, the future, and, of course, Tomorrowland.
On Saturday, November 14th at 1 p.m., a lecture will take place in the museum theater. James Baxter, Enchanted and Kung Fu Panda animator, will discuss Contemporary Character Animation and Classic Techniques. Learn more via The Walt Disney Family Museum.
The museum is closed on Tuesdays and select holidays. Otherwise, join the festivities between 10 a.m. and 6p.m. daily.
Bay Area traffic can be a nightmare. And, unfortunately, GPS systems are notorious for taking drivers to the wrong Montgomery Street. There’s more than one in San Francisco!
