The Museum which is next door to Charles Schulz's Redwood Hockey Arena is located in a residential area in Santa Rosa, which itself is about an hour north of San Francisco. It is a must-see for visitors to the Bay Area who are fans of the Peanuts strip/commercial property. It has a small gift shop, a theater and a media... More

If you grew up with Peanuts this is a must stop. It's more than a museum. It's like a time capsule. Very well done exhibits. There are things to do for kids and interactive stuff, but really it's geared towards adults and I would say probably more toward adults who remember the strips as well as the TV shows and... More

Anyone interested in Charles Schulz's cartooning/animation career, the Peanuts comic strip characters or cartooning/animation in general will enjoy a visit to this lovely & well run museum. It offers a nice mix of opportunities to explore at your own pace and /or join a guided tour. There is room for kids to burn off a bit of energy ( &... More

By far the happiest musuem I have ever been too! The galleries featuring Schulz's Peanuts strips were just brilliant and it was so nice to walk around and see other visitors laughing and smiling too. Really interesting information on Peanuts, Schulz and the publishing process. A good range of souvenirs on offer in the shop too. Definitely worth a visit... More

Based on the online description, we expected it would take about 2 hours to tour the museum and see it all. Wrong! This is a gem of a place. So much history! Don't miss the reproduction of Schultz's studio - and be sure to visit the Warm Puppy Cafe across the street. Need a souvenir? You won't find a more... More

Spent an enjoyable hour here recently. There is a guided tour which is included in the cost and also film screenings if you want to spend more time. Small nice gift shop with more upmarket Peanuts merchandise. They have a rotating series of exhibitions as well as a recreation of Schultz's study to see and a lot of the strips... More

If you are a fan of the Peanuts at all, you need to stop by this museum!! I loved Charles Schultz before, but after visiting this museum, I love him even more! The museum is so well done. The workers are all so friendly and knowledgeable. I went on the free tour and I'm pretty sure the older couple were... More

Liked the video of Charles Schulz and his biography. Also liked the genuine Snoopy animal I bought at the giftstore for $11.

The museum is a great way to spend a few hours while in the area. Interesting story about a very interesting individual who meant so much to his community, and to the country through his comic strips. It was especially interesting to go through his creative process and the way the museum was laid out was very well done, showing... More

This is a small museum in terms of exhibits but I found it interesting. The stuff upstairs deals more with the evolution of the comic strip and the artists life, including his studio transplanted. The neatest thing was a wall from his children's nursery in Colorado Springs from 1951. They removed the whole thing and brought it to the museum.... More
