During the Rogue One Event in San Francisco we had the opportunity to tour The Walt Disney Family Museum. I must admit that visiting The Walt Disney Family Museum has been on my travel to-do list for a while. We explored The Art of Pinocchio exhibit and the main museum buildings. The Walt Disney Family Museum is located in the Presidio with a gorgeous view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
While the Pinocchio exhibit sadly ended yesterday you can still visit the museum year round and learn more about this amazing family history. I am a huge fan of Disney so this was truly a dream come true. I could have spent all day wandering the museum and learning more about the Disney family history.
We were at The Walt Disney Museum primarily to visit the Wish Upon A Star The Art of Pinocchio Exhibit. I am so sad that the exhibit ended this week but I wanted to share with you all the photos that I was able to get from the museum. We couldn’t take pics in part of the exhibit area so these are the ones I am able to share.
The Art of Pinocchio exhibit showcased the artistic process and step behind-the-scenes to explore how one of the most influential animated films in history was produced. The exhibit featured more than 300 pieces of history from Pinocchio. The exhibit was featured in the Diane Disney Miller Exhibition Hall from May 18, 2016 through January 9, 2017.
Even though the Art of Pinocchio exhibit has closed you can still enjoy Pinocchio on Blu-Ray/DVD that comes out on
One of my favorite parts of the museum was seeing how the Disney characters have evolved and changed over the years.
This is one of the first drawings of Mickey Mouse known then as Mortimer Mouse!
