New Walt Disney museum to debut in San Francisco this fall
Written by Robert Niles
The Walt Disney Family Foundation this fall will open a new museum dedicated to Walt's life and work. But the museum won't be in one of the Disney company's theme parks - it will be in the Presidio complex in San Francisco.Tweet
From the press release [PDF}:
The stories of Disney’s life, creativity, family, and the processes and innovations he brought to his art will be told through a series of ten galleries. Highlights of the Museum will include:
How much of this is redundant to Walt Disney: One Man's Dream at Disney's Hollywood Studios and its predecessor, the old Walt Disney Story at Disneyland, I don't know. Perhaps this museum just will manage to provide a home for this story and these exhibits outside of the parks, where they were under pressure constantly from new attractions, shops or whatever else the parks need to put in to keep the turnstiles moving and cash registers chirping.
There is also a page on the Disney website dedicated to the new museum, though without much information as of this morning.
