This was a great venue to go to especially if you really love Disneyland. However, although it is for the young at heart, it is not really suited for small children because you have to walk through 10 galleries and do a lot of reading. Even...continued

A great experience but overwhelming with information!! I was there almost 4 hours and by the end I was passing up on several interactions. May need to go back. Not just a museum but an inspiration.

Terrific collection of artifacts, drawings, movie clips that show the highs and lows of Disney history. Fascinating-- I had forgotten some things (Sunday tv shows) and never knew others (World Fair and early cartooning) that shaped the impact of...continued

When you purchase your tickets the ticket person lets you know that you get a stamp on entering the museum so, that if you would like to take a break you can reenter without showing your ticket again. Now, after visiting here twice, I can see why...continued

It was a great experience! I learned everything and more about the life of Walt Disney. I'm so glad I got an opportunity to understand the history of this incredible man. I now have a much deeper appreciation of his legacy.

We're not big Disney fans, per se, but really enjoyed this museum. It includes a lot of social and historical context that made it much broader than we expected. Lots of unexpected memories, too. The gift shop is tasteful and modestly-stocked. ...continued

The clerk / admission sales person did not know how to process the Goldstar ticket but let us in with a sticker and said he would figure it out later... :)

I brought my 9 and 11 year old grandsons and both were bored. I thought there was more interactive programs for kids, but when we went, there was nothing for them to get into. I felt the cost was too high for what they had to display.

I loved it! I am of the generation that started watching "Disneyland" on my folks' black and white console TV (the ones on display at the museum brought tears to my eyes). Then when it became
"The Wonderful World of Color" we would go over to...

To really view everything allow yourself lots of time to really read and interact with the displays- listen to the recorded stories, use the screen to slide through the pictures. It is really a wonderful exhibit that has captured the essence of...continued

Wow! I was so impressed with this Museum. As a professional artist and Disneyphile, I was impressed with the layout and attention to detail. I planned 3 hours but could have spent a longer time if I didn't have others with me. A must for anyone...continued

So glad we visited on a weekday, no crowds & we could thoroughly enjoy each exhibit. Took a solid 2 hours, my kids (ages 16 & 9) both loved it and found the museum very interesting. Very nice little family outing that did not take up the entire day.

This is one of the best ways to learn about the "real man" behind Disneyland, Walt E. Disney. From the start of his adventurous life to the end. What a beautiful building and grounds to present his artifacts, The Presidio of San Francisco.

A lot of reading to do, to get anything out of this museum, but, a ton of information to be had covering the life of Walt Disney, an amazing man, who accomplished so much in his short life of 65 years.

The Disney Museum is riveting: a history of animation, of Disney, of the drawing teams and how it all evolved. Walt Disney was a visionary and the museum fascinates. I only was able to see half of the museum in 2-1/2 hours and will return to...continued

Well organized and lovely exhibits. Typical of Disney, everything is clean and shiny. Some interactive displays. I was kind of surprised you would have to pay and additional $7 per person to see a full length Disney film.

The museum of course chronicles the life and accomplishments of Walt Disney, but it is also a marvel of innovative and immersive experience design. You don't just walk through the exhibits..you flow with them and relive your own childhood...continued
