This family-friendly exhibition, organized with San Francisco's Walt Disney Family Museum, explores the influence that railroad trains had on Walt Disney's life and work. It also tells the story of how his railroading legacy lives on to this day in Disney films and theme parks around the world. The exhibition includes a wide variety of artifacts, firsthand accounts, archival videos, images of Walt and his trains, and one-of-a kind items, including Walt Disney's own Carolwood gondola railroad car, an illuminated model of Disneyland’s Main Street U.S.A, and a custom model train created in partnership with the Napa Valley Wine Train by the Napa Valley Model Railroad Historical Society.
We learn how Walt's passion for trains inspired Disney studio short cartoons and feature films, and influenced his personal life at home. Guest curator Michael Campbell, President Emeritus of the Carolwood Pacific Historical Society, constructed the exhibition to reflect Walt’s railroad journey from his early years to the creation of Disneyland and beyond, and reminds us that, over a century later, Walt’s railroading influence remains a vibrant and relevant force. Includes an exclusive audio tour created by exhibit curator Michael Campbell, narrated by longtime Disney announcer Bill Rogers, and Disney train-themed merchandise in our Museum Store. Audio tour is free with all paid admissions; $5 with free admissions. Visit www.napavalleymuseum.org for more information about the exhibition, memberships and tickets.
