"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.

I come here every time I am in the area. As a lifelong Peanuts fan, it is one of my favorite places. The Museum has permanent exhibits, including Schulz's studio, and rotating exhibits. When I was there, they had an exhibit about Schulz's love of ice skating and hockey including many Peanuts strips about these subjects. Numerous ones featured his... More

Unfortunately, the vist was not what I expected. However, you should go, you will learn a lot about Charles Schulz. I found the presentation is pretty flat. There were some interesting films to see but you have to be a Peanuts addict for the amount of reading and viewing of old comic scripts on the wall displays. There is a... More

What can I say - if you like Peanuts and Charlie Brown (or more to the point Snoopy and Woodstock) this museum is well worth a visit. Mrs. Fujairah Fan had never seen one of the Peanuts cartoons, but came away a real fan.

We were in Santa Rosa for a family wedding and looking for something to do on the morning of the big day. The hotel recommended the Schultz museum and it was so much fun. It is a beautiful space in Santa Rosa. The exhibits include lots of drawings of the Peanuts gang from the very early days to the last... More

This museum complex took me back to when we used to read Peanuts comic strips every day in our daily newspapers. Now that is a memory, with fewer papers and easy access to the strips. What Schulz accomplished goes far beyond his humorous slant on life as depicted in the cartoons. His love of ice hockey translated to the ice... More

I was in San Francisco and I had to visit the Charles M. Schulz Museum to bring my trip to a perfect end before I flew back to Brazil. It can be a little difficult for a foreigner to get there by bus, and I got a little lost until I found a cab to get there, but it was... More

For a child of the 70s, the museum taps into your nostalgia and gives you an opportunity to "get to know" Charles Schulz through his original artwork, letters, press interviews on film and the story of his beloved hockey/skating rink - very much in business - next door. I was happy to see that my young children also were immediately... More
