Our last stop for fun in San Francisco was the Disney Family Museum. We left Napa early Thursday afternoon after Baldacci specifically to make it in time. The Museum is in the Presidio, which is the old military base, and it's gorgeous. The views out to the bay are breathtaking. I wouldn't mind working there each day.
The lobby area displays are filled with all the awards Walt earned, whether they're his Oscars or medals from countries, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom! That is one tidbit I did not know about him. These displays are before the actual museum exhibits and pictures can be taken, but pictures are highly discouraged once you're among the exhibits (I took a couple anyway).
It starts on the first floor, not with his birth, but info about his parents and their families, and how they met. So it starts with pre-Walt info, including his siblings. After the first exhibit, it's all him, from being in France during WWI with the Red Cross, to his time with Laugh-o-gram, going bankrupt, moving to California, losing Oswald, and creating Mickey.
