School groups are welcome to explore the museum’s galleries on their own at a discounted school rate. Self-guided school groups have access to the museum’s core galleries, special exhibitions, and film screenings. Be sure to pick up a STEAM Self-Guide handout for each student to use while touring the core galleries. The STEAM Self-Guide focuses on the important roles that science, technology, engineering, art, and math each played in the creation of animated films and in the advancement of the medium at The Walt Disney Studios during Walt’s lifetime. The STEAM Self-Guide includes questions that encourage students to think critically about the skills needed to produce quality work in animation, as well as space for them to document instances of STEAM they find in the galleries. 

Other Programs

  • Students take a tour of our newest special exhibition, Mickey Mouse: From Walt to the World, with gallery activities and group discussions centered around one-of-a-kind Mickey artworks and objects. In the Learning Center, students bring to life their own animated characters using a Crankie box —illustrated stories literally cranked around two scrolls with a viewing screen. Students are welcome to self-guide through the main museum galleries before or after the workshop finishes.
