    Learning Center

Thanks to a new partnership with The Society of California Pioneers (located just steps away from the museum), students begin this program at The Society’s research library engaging with primary source materials, creating a narrative, and collecting images. The second half of their hands-on experience takes place in museum’s Learning Center. In small groups, they combine animation and history, as Walt Disney did in his own films, to create animated shorts. 

 

 

Scholarship Programs, Admission Waivers, and Bus Scholarships

Scholarship Programs

We are committed to quality education and providing every student with the opportunity to benefit from our curriculum-based school experiences. To ensure that under-resourced schools can take part in our school experiences, we offer two scholarship programs.


Admission Waivers

Scholarships are available for museum admission for all Title I schools. Please indicate your Title I status on your registration form or contact education@wdfmuseum.org for more info.


Bus Scholarships

Bus scholarships are available for field trips scheduled during the academic year for Title I schools in the San Francisco Unified School District. Teachers are responsible for booking their own buses.
