Walter Miller is also a co-founder of the museum and has previously served as President of the Walt Disney Family Foundation.
Regarding his new position, Walter said:
“I am honored to continue contributing to this inspirational space that my mother and I first envisioned so many years ago.

I’m excited to embark on this new chapter in keeping his story alive.”Walter E.D. Miller

About The Walt Disney Family Museum
The museum is located at The Presidio of San Francisco, California. The Presidio was previously an active Army base and a Historical Landmark but now serves as a national park, in addition of being home to the museum.
Walt’s daughter, Diane Disney Miller, was the founder of this museum, and as its name suggests, it’s dedicated to honor the life, work, and everlasting legacy of Walt Disney and his family over the years.
It is not, however, a part of The Walt Disney Company, nor are they formally associated.
Per its website, the museum “is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that features contemporary, interactive galleries with state-of-the-art exhibits narrated in Walt’s own voice alongside early drawings, cartoons, films, music, a spectacular model of Disneyland, and more.”
The Walt Disney Family Museum is currently hosting the Disney Cats & Dogs exhibit, which has just been extended through June 2nd, 2024, and they also announced that there will be many, both public and members-only, events coming up to celebrate the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company.
There are also many virtual experiences available on their website that we highly recommend that you check out if you are a fan of Walt Disney.
