"Peanuts" devotees won't be disappointed in the museum that memorializes the work of cartoonist Charles M. Schulz, who made Santa Rosa his adopted hometown. The museum features an early mural of Charlie Brown and Snoopy, a wood relief sculpture of Snoopy showing the changes in the famed cartoon dog's appearance over the years and Schulz's actual work studio.

Yes Santa Rosa is a bit of a drive fro San Fran, but this museum is worth the effort, Friendly relaxed atmosphere, terrific Peanuts themed gift shop, and something to hold the interest if every age. Do NOT miss grabbing a snack at the Warm Puppy in the skating rink next door.

We spent a couple of hours amazed by the man that was know as sparky. We started with the 8 minute video that gave us an overview of Charles Schultz and how the museum came to be. It was narrated by mrs Schultz and well done. This museum is mostly about the peanuts gang, but also the history of cartoons... More

Good museum with lots of classic comic strips. Interesting info on Charles Schultz and his career. Very nice staff and grounds. Very small gift shop area. Museum is a bit hard to find but worth it.

This is a wonderful museum. We opted for a self guided tour and found that there were many interesting collections and stories revolving around more than just the Peanuts cartoons. The building itself is beautiful and a visit to the restroom with its very unique tiles is a must do. The grounds and maze are a delight and the ambiance... More

We really enjoyed the museum. The guides were extremely nice and told interesting stories. It was a pleasure seeing the old Peanuts cartoons. We spent about twice as much time as we thought we would there. Small gift shop but very large one next to the ice rink next door.

This museum is the perfect look into the life of Charles Schulz and the Snoopy cartoon. Whether you take a tour with a docent or walk around on your own, you cannot miss the simplicity of Mr. Schulz. I am a little biased because I loved the Snoopy cartoon since I was little, but non-Snoopy lovers will enjoy themselves too.... More

To be honest we spent far too long here - everything you wanted to know about Schultz and Peanuts all in one place. Cross the road to the Warm Puppy cafe for a hot chocolate on your way out & check out the bigger gift shop next to the ice rink (and go upstairs where there are more museum exhibits).... More

Fans of Schulz's work will get the most from it but those who never followed Charlie Brown and the gang will still get a lot out of this great little museum. There is a cafe nearby, an ice rink and a huge gift shop with another gallery on the second floor to check out. All of this is within the... More
