"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.

Special exhibits are shown in the first gallery – the current exhibit is “Animating Comics”, featuring animation cels from a few Peanuts shows as well as... More

We had time to wait for the 11:00 guided tour. The guide told us many entertaining facts about Sparky as we learned he was called. It lasted about an hour and is well worth your time. Then we visited the Warm Puppy for coffee and the gift shop across the street. Didn't know Charles Schultz was such an avid sportsman... More

We went early and had a personal tour with a docent, who was very knowledgeable. In addition to the excellent exhibits, we watched the interview of Charles Shulz by Charlie Rose in the museum theater.

We had a free hour during a business trip to Santa Rosa and decided to go to the "Charlie Brown" museum. It was well done and interesting. You can walk around at your own pace and it takes about an hour. It is an interesting history of the Peanuts cartoons and the animation of cartoons. There is even a drawing... More

the museum is beautiful, and fun to see all the cartoons. There are cartoonists who show how they work too, and places for kids to try drawing.

One of the best museums I have ever visited. Beautiful building. Marvellous displays. Helpful guides. And you laugh on your way round including the fab cinema. A real insight into a comic genius and a lovely man. Great and cheap cafe next door a AND an ice rink where Schulz played hockey. What more do you want? Highly recommended.

I just love the Peanuts cartoons so I loved the whole attraction. Went on Father's Day so my husband got in free! Very entertaining and you can easily spend hours there with the entire family.

My wife just loved this place. And I must admit after visiting the museum I started reading the Peanuts strip every morning. God bless Snoopy's creator. Don't miss this wonderful experience and the hockey palace next door built my the generosity of Mr. Schulze for children.
