If you are a die hard Disney fan, you will love it. Not much for kids or even the casual fan. I did enjoy it because several of Walt's former residences were in my old neighborhood so that was kind of fun. Space is beautiful. Gift shop is meh.

I'm a local San Franciscan and it took me more than 10 years to actually visit this museum which I truly regret. It's an absolute gem, filled with fascinating memorabilia and incredibly well put together informative displays about the beginnings of animation. I had no idea how many techniques Walt Disney invented ! A great museum for both adults and... More

We visited with family last weekend. The museum is located in the historic Presidio parade ground, and is a perfect example of how to repurpose historic buildings on this historical Army post. The museum focuses on the life story of the Disney family ancestors and Walt's life story. They use excellent displays, both audio and video, to highlight is birth,... More

We enjoyed the various rooms of the Disney legacy - from black and white to full technicolor - and then the creation of Disneyland! What a creative spirit was Mr. Walt!

Wasn't sure what to expect but was very impressed! Learn so much about Walt and his family. The huge room about Disneyland was worth going alone. If you are a dishy fan this is a must do.

Leave it to Disney to create an amazing Museum experience. Most times I skim through the reading in museums. Not at this museum. I spent nearly two hours reading almost every single bit of information. It was incredible to learn more about Walt Disney's life.

I loved this museum! It was immaculate, the staff were the sweetest, and it was so interesting learning about Walt's incredible life. The area it's located in, Presidio Hills (I think), was lovely and quiet- even though it was a Saturday. I wanted to eat lunch here because the food looked amazing, but I didn't have time. It would be... More

As a family that loves anything Walt Disney, this was such an interesting and fascinating museum. To learn all about the Disney family, and the story behind the start of Walt Disney World, was so special! I would recommend this museum to anyone.

We only found out about this gem from a little bit of internet research prior. It's not very well advertised, which is both a pro and a con. Good because it wasn't stupidly busy and you had time to read stuff, a con because it's very interesting and not often things talked about. Any Disney lover should come and take... More
