Home For The Holidays at Carolwood - The Walt DIsney Family Museum

The Walt Disney Family Museum located in The Presidio in San Francisco, California is a love letter from the museum's founder, Walt's daughter Diane Disney Miller to the legacy of her father. The museum is a must do for any fan of the films, theme parks and other projects that Walt Disney created for the world. Most important of all the museum is a magnificent tribute to Walt Disney the man.

The month of December brings a small special exhibit to the museum. An elaborate model shows the Disney family home surrounded by the famous miniature train known as the Carolwood Pacific. Unlike other model trains this one had engines and cars that could be ridden around the tracks which famously included a tunnel that avoided Lillian Disney's flower beds.

The model is located in a room in the basement of the museum.
The walls are decorated with scenes of Christmas and images of Walt Disney Company Christmas Cards.

The model of the Carolwood Pacific is a terrific holiday addition to the Walt Disney Family Museum.

The museum features monthly film screenings. For December the films include Babes in Toyland and Christmas With Walt Disney.  Film screenings are included with admission to the museum.  Ask for a film ticket when you purchase your ticket.
