The Walt Disney Family Museum was conceived to present the real story of Walt Disney, the man, told by him and others who knew him well. The Museum is located in the Presidio of San Francisco, a former U.S. Army base and now a National Park. The three buildings that house the Museum are on the National Register of Historic Places.
The permanent galleries of the Museum are located at 104 Montgomery Street, one of the five identical barracks built in the 1890s on the Main Post. To accommodate the exhibits and better facilitate circulation, a 20,000 square foot addition was designed to occupy the courtyard within the U-shaped building. This addition – a glass and steel pavilion – is distinct from the brick masonry that surrounds it and connects wings on all floors. A state-of-the-art digital theater is located on the lower level adjacent to an education center with two studios for teaching digital animation as well as traditional art techniques.
Offices for the Museum and a space for use as a special exhibition hall are located at 122 Riley Avenue. Erected in 1904, the building was originally the army post gymnasium. A 1940s machine-gun storage house now accommodates the mechanical systems for the Museum campus.

Walter Elias Disney was born in Chicago on December 5, 1901, the fourth of Flora and Elias Disney’s five children. Of his siblings, Walt formed an especially close bond with his brother Roy, eight and a half years his senior. They became best friends and, in later years, business partners.
When Walt was four years old his family moved from Chicago to a farm in Marceline, Missouri, where he enjoyed the idyllic rural life and first discovered his love of drawing. Five years later the Disneys moved again, this time to the contrasting urban environment of Kansas City. Elias had bought a Kansas City Star paper route, and young Walt worked long hours delivering morning and evening papers while simultaneously attending school. It was in Kansas City, too, that he discovered the world of motion pictures, vaudeville, and amusement parks.
In 1917 Walt and his parents moved back to Chicago. When the United States entered World War I, Roy joined the navy. Walt, too young for the armed
