“The model for Disneyland!”

Walt Disney first came to Marceline, Missouri by train when he was five years old. When Walt returned to Marceline 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. 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.

EVERY DISNEY FAN SHOULD VISIT! We were so lucky to be led on our tour by Inez, who was a personal friend of Walt and Lillian. What interesting stories and exhibits, from miniature models of Disneyland to actual pieces of Disneyland History (the kids Autopia Cars). You learn a lot about the time of Walt's life, and we loved hearing the recording of Walt and his family on New Years eve - just like my grandparents used to do! A stroll in the town was lovely and there is a neat park right outside the museum perfect for a picnic lunch.

Such a cool little place! Worth the stop! We got there 30 minutes before they closed and offered us a discount since it was so close to closing time. Everyone was so nice and it was interesting to learn about Walt's life!
