While we were in San Francisco, it was a big part of our plans to get to the Walt Disney Family Museum. The museum contains the life and legacy of Walt Disney. As Disney-philes, we were excited to tour and experience this exhibit. In the end we spent nearly three hours there and felt like we could have stayed longer.
It is $20 for adults and they give AAA discounts, so be sure to ask.
In trying to put together this post, I realized I had over 500 pictures, and knew I could not post them all. So, I have posted them in an online album, so you can experience everything. Click the link to view all of the pictures.
To get to the museum, we took a bus most of the way from our hotel in the Financial District to the historic district of Presidio. Then we had about a half mile walk. The Walt Disney Family Museum is in Presidio of San Francisco. It is very close to the Golden Gate Bridge.
Upon arriving into the museum, Walt was there to greet us. Well not actually.
Before I start to review the museum, they had a temporary special event in another building honoring the works of Mary Blair. It was actually the last day of the event, so we were glad to have been able to see the display.
Mary Blair was probably one of Walt most prized art director. She worked on some of his most famous works such as Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, & Song of the South. She is also know for her work at the parks, especially It’s A Small World. There is also a large mural in the Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World that she is credited with developing. Here is a slideshow of a few of the pictures from the exhibit. There are more in the above online album link.
After touring the Mary Blair exhibit, we returned to the main museum.
