"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.

Could have been more easy presented. Thought some of the museum were hard to know with out background knowledge. Little bit expensive... Could have been more characters in the museum - we found many of them around in Santa Rosa for free...

i live in santa rosa and probably stop by the museum once a year. I imagine a lot of people go one time and feel that is enough. not much going on that would keep children interested, unless they play in the courtyard. the gift shop is worth a visit...however, I do feel the ice skating rink is worthy of...

Everything you wanted to know about Charles "Sparky" Schulz and his amazing mind that created the Peanut characters is located here at this museum! Highly recommend a visit to this small, but intensely interesting museum.

The Charles Schulz Museum is not a museum I would have voluntarily chosen to visit, however, I was talked into going there by my grandsons on our recent northern California visit. Despite the fact that I have always LOVED Peanuts comic strips, as well as the holiday TV specials, I was not anxious to spend half a day in a... More

I loved this museum. Plan to spend more time than we had scheduled. If you go before 11:30 AM, then you will see the exhibits before the free tour given. He was great.

Our visit to the Charles Schultz Museum in Santa Rosa was one of our favorite activities during our three weeks in central California. The museum is well planned and executed with a variety of displays and presentations of the life of Charles Schultz, cartoons and animation, and the Peanuts Gang. The wall of cartoons that creates a cartoon is ingenuous.... More

Lots of history and reading to do. I expected a Peanuts playground. A maze. Activities. Instead there were Peanuts inspired art installations and lots to read at exhibits. A tiny "labyrinth." Interesting for adults but boring for kids, I'm sure. We were the only ones watching the Charlie Rose nterview. If you want to learn about Schultz, you may be... More
