San Francisco, November 11, 2019—The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, California presents The Walt Disney Studios and World War II, a remembrance of The Walt Disney Studios’ extensive contributions to the Allies’ World War II effort. Curated by World War II historian Kent Ramsey, this immersive exhibition will be displayed in the Diane Disney Miller Exhibition Hall from May 13, 2020 through January 11, 2021.

The Walt Disney Family Museum is pleased to announce its 2019 community access exhibition, A Powerful Force: Working to End Homelessness Through Art. Featuring original artwork created by young people experiencing homelessness, the exhibition’s title was inspired by Walt Disney himself: “There is great comfort and inspiration in this feeling of close human relationships and its bearing on our mutual fortunes—a powerful force to overcome the tough breaks which are certain to come for most of us from time to time.”

The Walt Disney Family Museum presents Mickey Mouse: From Walt to the World, a celebration of animation’s most beloved and recognizable character. This exclusive, original exhibition opens Spring 2019. This special exhibition chronicles Mickey’s impact and influence on art and entertainment over the past nine decades and tells the story of his origin, rise to fame, and enduring world-wide appeal, juxtaposed with Walt Disney’s inspiring and parallel story. Presented in conjunction with the museum’s tenth anniversary, the exhibition will be displayed in the Diane Disney Miller Exhibition Hall from May 16, 2019 through January 6, 2020.
The Walt Disney Family Museum is excited to announce the return of Home for the Holidays at Carolwood, an immersive seasonal installation that celebrates Walt’s family and his love of trains. The exhibition will be on view in the museum’s Theater Gallery from November 15, 2018 to January 7, 2019.
We are pleased to announce The Walt Disney Family Museum's next Community Access Exhibition, Fresh Starts, featuring the artistic self-expression of young men in Bay Area juvenile detention centers.

Join us in celebrating the distinctive talents and enduring influence of Walt Disney Studios’ most celebrated artists, playfully dubbed the “Nine Old Men” by Walt Disney, featuring never-before-seen artwork from all animated features beginning with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), to The Fox and the Hound (1981).
