Starting Oct. 1, you’ll be able to get a taste of Disney in San Francisco. That’s when The Walt Disney Family Museum opens, with 10 galleries focusing on different chapters in the life of Walt Disney himself, from his early years in Kansas City to his arrival in Hollywood in the 1920s to his technological innovations, like synchronizing sound to a cartoon.

Displays will include the Oscar statuettes awarded to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs — one full size and seven little ones — along with the earliest known drawings of Mickey Mouse. Other exhibits include listening stations, interactive displays and more than 200 video monitors.

The museum is located at 104 Montgomery St. It will be open every day except Tuesdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Admission is $20 for adults, $12.50 for kids 6-17; available online at www.waltdisney.org.
