I don't feel that this museum is for the under 7 crowd. Although my daughter and I did spend over 2 1/2 hours here is wasn't spent in the main part of the museum that displayed the history of the comic strip. We spent 30 minutes in the small movie theater watching Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (which we love), about 20... More

I have been a fan for 46 years just amazing. My husband added it to our travel of Napa. I had the best time..... it was like a step back in time. So many memories. They have presented it all so well ...from the strip mural wall to Charles study to one his first his daughter's bedroom wall. Even then... More

After a great lunch at Spud Point Crab Company, we visited the Charles M. Schulz Museum. What a great museum that brought back many fond memories. Throughout the museum, you saw hundreds of comic strips in displays for your enjoyment. The museum showed Schulz's progression with his comic strip over the years. During the war years, you saw Schulz project... More

Well done. Not too much info to bog you down. If you loved the Peanuts gang you will enjoy this. The docents we had were old neighbors of Charles Schultz and had good insight into his life.

An excellent exhibit and memorial to this great American icon. Just the right size to give you an intimate look into his life and the development of the Peanuts universe. Give yourself about two hours to browse through all the displays and revisit your favorite strips.

We are 68 years young but our visit to this delightful museum made us decades younger as we perused Shultz's comic strips throughout his career. It was pure joy to watch Charlie, Lucy, Linus, Snoopy and the Little Red Haired Girl develop from unfamiliar early forms into the characters we have come to love. Besides comic strips there are sculptures,... More

Love, love this place for kids and adults alike! The special activities offered occasionally are fun and easy enough for the little ones. So much history of the "Peanuts" characters and Schulz in a space small enough to cover and still have time to lunch at the ice rink.

This is a very impressive collection and great fun for Charlie Brown enthusiasts. Even though they have some great things for small children (arts and crafts, play areas, etc...) I think unless you were brought up with the Peanuts comic strip you might be bored with the museum. I really enjoyed reading all of the history and watching the video... More

This was more than just a Chas. Schults Museum, If you're a "student" of American Culture and cartoons, you have a lot of pleasant surprises at this place.
