The Walt Disney Family Museum
Posted 16 October 2009 - 08:47 PM
The Museum documents the story of Walt Disney, from his birth to his death, some of his failures and all of his accomplishments.
Walt's story is told through the liberal use of his voice (courtesy the hundreds of interviews he gave over the course of his life), state of the art technology, interactive displays, dozens of film clips and literally hundreds and hundreds of very rare artifacts. (I recall being told there are some 200 video monitors and flat screen televisions in use in the Museum).
Gallery number six covers the war years. I am pleased to say that at least 75% of the three display cases in this gallery showcase items from my own collection - insignia and home front related.
I was invited to attend two pre-opening preview events at the end of September and had the most amazing time. To see my items on display, with the "Courtesy..." tag on each loaned item was such a charge! And it was cool to stand and watch the reactions of the guests as they looked over my artifacts in those cases and to hear what they had to say.
If any of you plan a trip to San Fran, or live in the area, make sure to stop in for a visit...and be prepared to spend at least 5 - 6 hours.

A very poor website can be found here:
They used to have a great site filled with images, video and film clips, and great interviews, but that site went down a few months ago and was been replaced by the current one.
