Walt Disney Hometown Museum

We are open for the 2016 season!

Come and visit the Walt Disney Hometown Museum… we are revealing an entire new floor of space filled with fun and exciting new exhibits and displays.

Walt Disney first came to Marceline, Missouri by train when he was five years old. When Walt returned  in 1946, the Santa Fe train depot evoked cherished memories of when he first pulled into the Marceline. As a fitting tribute, the museum that honors him is located inside the very same train depot.

Update: Speaker Series Postponed

The release date of Becky’s new book ‘Walt Disney Studios: A Lot to Remember’ was unexpectedly delayed, and The Walt Disney Company was forced to cancel some of her signing events.

The book will still be on sale in the Walt Disney Hometown Museum Store, but online ticket sales for her Speaker Series event will be suspended later this week.

For those of you who have already purchased your tickets, our deepest apologies. Refunds will begin early next week.

Becky will be included in our 2017 Speaker Series lineup.

Unique Disney History and Artifacts

The Walt Disney Hometown Museum contains a unique collection of Disney family effects, not able to be viewed anywhere else in the world. Visitors to the museum are treated to interpretive exhibits focusing on the Disney family, Walt’s life in Marceline as well as friends and family who supported him in his creative adventures while growing up.

Also exhibited at the museum are hundreds of personal letters written between Disney family members, the only park attraction to leave and be operated outside of a Disney park and other artifacts, effects and personal belongings from Disney family members.

The Walt Disney Hometown Museum is a private venture. Our mission:

Ensuring that the world never forgets that Walt Disney was a simple farm boy from Marceline who grew up to become the keeper of childhood magic.
