This winter, The Walt Disney Family Museum wants you to celebrate the holidays and Walt’s birthday with a number of special exhibitions, screenings and other events that take place throughout the month of December.
The special exhibition of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs continues through April 14, 2013 and features over 200 works of art depicting conceptual drawings, story sketches and more.
Another special screening includes Christmas with Walt, which guests can view daily at 1:30 p.m. (except Tuesdays, 12/5 and 12/8.) This exclusive film allows viewers to take a peek at how Walt Disney celebrated Christmas, whether at home, Disneyland park or the Studio. In addition to several clips from classic Disney films, the screening also allows viewers to watch rarely-seen home videos of Walt and his family. Admission is free for members or with paid museum admission or $7 for adults, $5 for youth without museum admission.
A Birthday Celebration for Walt, available on a first-come, first served basis, takes place December 5 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. On this day, admission is free for everyone. To celebrate Walt’s birthday, guests will be treated to screenings of Walt: The Man Behind the Myth and Christmas with Walt, as well as gallery discussions and much more.
During the month of December, the museum also offers a variety of classes and activities, such as “The Art of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: Character Concept Art.” With this class, guests can create their own artwork using paints and pastels while drawing upon their own imaginations. The class takes place December 1-2 and December 8-9 at 1:30 p.m. in the Learning Center. Class is free with paid museum admission.
