Walt Disney Family Museum
This space showcases the life and work of Walt Disney. It’s also meant to inspire creators to use their imagination when pursuing their goals. And for Bay Area Star Wars fans, not far from the museum is a Yoda fountain where you can take photos with the Jedi himself
It includes a sculpture by James Turrell called “Three Gems.” The piece is on a grass-covered hill with a small opening on top. Visitors can enter the hill and look up to see the sky. There’s a LED lighting system within the chamber that alters the sky’s color.
