Visitors with small children (no strollers allowed) who are expecting a theme park-like experience might be better off elsewhere. Instead, this museum (a former Presidio barracks) is tailored for die-hard fans who expect no less than a scholarly look at Disney's life and work, presented in 10 galleries. Still, there's lots of fun here -- check out the enormous model of Disneyland and the console TVs playing reruns of "Wonderful World of Color." Be forewarned: My cab driver had never heard of the museum but insisted it was in Golden Gate Park. On certain evenings, the museum hosts Animate Your Night, an after-hours party with entertainment and cocktails. 104 Montgomery St., the Presidio; (415) 345-6800, http://www.waltdisney.org. GPS'ers will need the 94129 ZIP Code. Without it, you will be directed to Montgomery Street in the Financial District. Open 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. Wednesdays-Mondays. Adults $20, seniors/students $15,children ages 6-17 $12.
