Project: Walt Disney Family Museum
Location: The Presidio, San Francisco, CA
Architect: Page & Turnbull - San Francisco
Interior Design: Rockwell Group - New York
Product: Asian Rosewood Flooring
The eye-popping reclaimed Asian Rosewood flooring used for the new Walt Disney Family Museum helps create a warm, vibrant atmosphere for the museum's entry, ticket, store and cafe spaces.
The new facility, designed by Rockwell Group, occupies a former U.S. Army barracks in the beautiful and historic Presidio of San Francisco.
The Walt Disney Family Museum chronicles the life and achievements of Walt Disney, who helped raise animation to an art, transformed the film industry, and created a global and distinctly American legacy, according to the museum's founders.
The museum uses a mix of historic materials and artifacts to tell Disney’s story through innovative displays that include listening stations, interactive media, and more than 200 video monitors. Much of the material is lent by the Walt Disney Company and private collectors.
The Walt Disney Family Museum occupies three buildings along the parade grounds of the old Presidio, a former U.S. Army base founded in 1847.
The total area of the museum's three buildings is 77,000 square feet and includes 10 galleries, a 114-seat screening facility, a learning center, a museum store, a cafe, offices and other facilities.
The museum is owned and operated by the Walt Disney Family Foundation, a non-profit organization.
