Visit The Museum

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.

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.
