The Walt Disney Family Museum (Walt Disney Family Foundation Custom Pub): The Man, the Magic, the Memories by J. B. Kaufman
The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco!
Why Every Fan Should Visit Walt Disney Family Museum
And in a way, there is one, since the museum does just what Disney thought a ride should do when he created Disneyland more than half a century ago: it tells a story. And while the museum is almost leisurely in relating its narrative, only here and there veering into uncharted terrain, and while children will quickly pass by many sections that will fascinate their elders, there are more than enough thrills for everyone. Who needs Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Caribbean pirates, Matterhorn rides or a robotic Abraham Lincoln when the story being told touches the experience of anyone who had contact with the 20th century and its Disneyesque amusements? It is a life of relatively tame domesticity, extraordinary hard work and occasional controversy. The motivation behind the museum did not seem to promise much more excitement. Some recent biographies, she said in a recent interview in The New York Times, also portrayed him and his marriage in an unflattering light. So the Walt Disney Family Foundation, a nonprofit organization independent from the company, decided to create a museum entirely devoted to Disney.
By Betsy Malloy. Mickey Mouse and Disneyland are part of the fabric of the American experience. In the 21st Century, few young people know what the Baby Boomer generation understands without explanation: the name Disney is more than a corporate logo. In fact, the museum is entirely separate from the company that bears the Disney logo. The Disney Family Museum is not a "Disney" museum full of cartoons and rides. Instead, it tells the story of a man who was first and foremost a storyteller himself. If you don't want to hear about Walt Disney all day and learn about his life, this place isn't for you.
Beautifully done. Beautifully situated in the Presidio. I enjoyed the exhibition, learned a lot about his inspirations leading to his innovations. We went in August and were in awe as we are in the Family Museum. Mickeys display ends in early
This museum is incredible, for Disney fan as much as for people just interested to know how Walt Disney would have had all of these wonderful ideas! Lot's of stories, archives, videos, a big model of DisneyLand and much more!! Jump in the story of a man who made dreams of millions of people! If you wanna take time to see everything, 2 hours and half is not too much! Loved visiting the Museum -- and it's great to be in the middle of the Presidio; to see the vista of the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. Unassuming, in a beautifully restored brick building, the museum is well-organized.
Lincoln at Disneyland offer sufficient exhibits on the life of Walt Disney. Well, you could say Disneyland is something of a gateway drug with Walt Disney Family Museum being the more serious stuff. Given how many cynics there are who view the Disney Parks as crass commercialism, a tourist trap, etc. The latter has loaned several materials from its Archives, and is a regular benefactor of the museum. All of this is abundantly clear while walking through the exhibits. Rather than attempting to elevate Walt Disney to a mythical status, as the company is prone to do, the Walt Disney Family Museum seeks to humanize him and to tell his story.
