Did you know that on this date in 1967, Philip and Jay Kunz flew a kite 28,000 feet, thereby getting into the Guinness Book of World Records? Speaking of kites, there is a special exhibit on display at The Walt Disney Family Museum. It is Water to Paper, Paint to Sky: the Art of Tyrus Wong. Known for his work on the Disney–animated film, Bambi (1942), Mr. Wong (now 102!) has many accomplishments, and one of them is kite-making. An exhibit of Mr. Wong’s work will be on display through February 2014. The Walt Disney Family Museum is located at 104 Montgomery Street in The Presidio, in San Francisco. Tickets for films are complimentary when you pay your regular admission price, but if you are just going to see the film, there is a charge for that. If you are just going through the museum galleries, give yourself at least 2 hours.
The Walt Disney Family Museum is open Wednesday through Sunday 10am-6pm: it is closed Tuesdays. You can buy food on the premises (there’s a café), but you can’t take pictures of the displays. For more information (and current admission prices), please visit:
