If you love the peanuts, you will love this spectacular museum. Remember to check the hours since the museum is not open 7 days a week.

Our family visited the museum last month and it was a most enjoyable experience. The museum exhibits are expansive and well done. Our guide was informative and obviously loved what he was doing. The café and Charles's favorite table brought the visit a sense of reality. The gift shop has all the memorabilia for gifts or just for oneself. Not... More

This was not an attraction I chose to visit but went along with some friends. I was amazed at how much I didn't know about the depth behind the Peanuts comic strip. My favorite part was the section dedicated to social commentary. My visit has given me a new appreciation for his artwork and comic strip.

Plan to spend at least four (4) hours at the museum in order to sufficiently see and do everything. Great for our elementary school child, but our preschooler would have been bored. They have lots to look at and read, an outdoor area, and a theatre. Have a question, ask one of the volunteers at the museum.

So much fun, even for those who are not Charles Schultz enthusiasts. Lots to see. My kids loved reading all the comic strips and th interactive exhibits.My kids had a great time and thankfully I was able to make it out of the gift shop without spending too much.

This museum is very interesting to the person who loves Snoopy and the gang and even someone who is not as crazy about them. It was fun to explore and learn about Charles Schultz. Check out the ice arena - we arrived before the museum opened and went over and had Peppermint Patty's hot chocolate and watched local school kids... More

We grew up with the Peanuts cartoon, so were interested in visiting the museum. We were a little hesitant, because we thought it might be geared for children, but were very pleasantly surprised that there were plenty of displays that were of interest, including a biography timeline of Schulz's life, and an interesting interview with Charlie Rose and Charles Schulz...

This is my favorite museum by far. As soon as you get out of the car, you are immersed into the world of Peanuts. I love learning about how the world around Schulz influenced his work in both the Social Commentary exhibit which is a temporary exhibit through the beginning of November as well as the permanent exhibits upstairs.
