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.

We had a great time here. It's a true art gallery, and not simply a place for the kids; the history of Peanuts is fascinating. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and the exhibits thoughtfully put together. Well worth a visit.

This was our third visit to this museum and definitely one of the highlights of our trip. We are avid Peanuts fans and coming here is the most amazing experience. Everything you could ever want to know about Peanuts you will learn here. There are thousands of strips, a theatre that shows Peanuts cartoons (some, like "It's the Girl in... More

I learned a lot about the man himself. The comic strips that I've never seen before. The gifts had many books and shirts at good prices.

The museum was very fun for the whole family. We enjoyed hearing about Charles Schulz and learning how Snoopy and Charlie Brown evolved. We only had 2 hours in the museum but could've spent a lot more!
