Great history of Charles Schulz and the Peanuts. Beautiful building, with nicely designed exhibits. Easy to see the whole thing in an hour or two - or longer if you want to linger. Many photo ops with Peanuts character statues.

What a cool museum. We leaned about Charles Schulz and the history of the Peanuts Comic Strip. We spent about 1-2 hours in the museum. One of the coolest exhibits was a wall from Charles early homes where he painted characters for his children. You can see Charlie Brown. It is a place where you can spend 1 hour or... More

If you have ever ready Peanuts and liked it, you have to visit the Schultz Museum. It's a walk down memory lane (and behind the curtain)!

Museum offers two sections. Downstairs exhibits are focused on history of comic strips in general and history of Peanuts strip in particular. I specifically enjoyed the way that the way Schulz dealt with emerging social issues was discussed. Upstairs is focused on Schulz, the man and artist.

Since I've been reading Peanuts Cartoon all my life, I had to visit this museum. What a great story of Charles M. Schulz. You have to visit this as he was a wonderful, kind man that gave back to the community. The museum was clean, very friendly people that would walk up to you and give you more information and... More

My husband and I were on a trip along the West Coast for our 20th wedding anniversary. We found this museum online before we left for the trip, so when we were close to Santa Rosa, we left the Coast and went inland. We toured this museum on our actual 20th wedding anniversary! It was the BEST gift my husband... More

We drove over two hours to get to the museum and it was so worth it! I am a huge Peanuts lover and the museum exceeded my expectations. My 9 & 11 year old really enjoyed making their own strip and dog house.

If your a fan of Peanuts & the crew, this is worth the stop. Sketches for strips, mock-ups, and other memorabilia are displayed. Bring the kids! Help this helps.

Movie room showed great cartoons and footage. No military discount available. Many activities going on like cartoon school, meet a professional artist and pictures with statues.
