The Walt Disney Family Museum is dedicated to the life of Walt Disney and the beloved artistic empire he inspired. The museum opened in 2009 in a former army barrack and gymnasium at the heart of the Presidio, the city’s military-post-turned-National-Park, thanks to the work of Disney’s eldest daughter, Diane. Inside, permanent exhibits document Disney’s innovations in sound and animation and provide a fascinating look at the career of the man behind the mouse, including the audio-enhanced tale of how Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was almost abandoned. Regularly rotating exhibits feature the work of revered animators and artistic collaborations, some of which, like Disney’s project with Spanish surrealist Salvador Dali, were never completed. Stop by the Fantasia-themed theater to catch a Disney classic six days a week.
