Walt Disney Family Museum

For those that haven't heard, there is a new museum in San Francisco opening soon. I hope to be able to visit one of these days.

There are several sources of info about it. Here are two official ones:

Disney site: http://disney.go.com/disneyatoz/familymuseum/index.html

There is even a Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/TheWaltDisne..._fb_noscript=1

Below is a news article from NewsRoomAmerica.com

Disney Museum To Open In San Fran
2009-09-19 01:10pm


San Francisco will soon become a place of note on Disney fans maps as a museum opens up paying homage to the master animator.

The Walt Disney Family Museum opens in San Francisco will open its doors on October 1, 2009 and bring the fascinating and inspiring story of Walt Disney to life.

Born in Chicago in 1901, Disney grew up on a failing farm in the rural Midwest, fell in love with drawing and animation and traveled, nearly penniless, to California in the early 1920s. Over the next 40 years, Disney elevated animation to an art form, created the first Academy Award-winning nature documentary, commissioned scores of songs that millions of people know by heart, and oversaw the birth of the first theme park, Disneyland.

Today, more than 40 years after his death, Disney's characters and creations remain an indelible part of popular culture around the world.

``The name `Disney' calls to mind the vast company that bears my father's name, rather than my father himself,'' said Diane Disney Miller, daughter of Walt Disney and a director of the foundation that is funding the $110 million museum.

"My father was a man of endless curiosity who loved to tinker and explore and entertain people. We look forward to sharing an honest and affectionate portrait of this amazing man."

The Walt Disney Family Museum will contain hundreds of audio clips of Disney and his family and coworkers telling the stories of his creations, as well as over 1,600 objects and works of art, 200 monitors, and interactive exhibits that will invite visitors to learn about Walt Disney and the industry he nurtured.

Highlights of the museum include the earliest known drawings of Mickey Mouse, animation cells of Disney's characters, storyboards, a Disney innovation, that map out timeless film classics and the one-eighth scale train he installed at his Hollywood home that spurred his vision for Disneyland

I really want to go there! I guess that we'll have to plan a trip to SF. We both have relatives living nearby, too!
