"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've been a Peanuts fan since the '60s, so it was really interesting to visit this museum and find out more about Charles Schultz and how his cartoons developed. Our guide was really interesting, probably because she seemed to have a genuine affection for the cartoons and the artist. She was such a fount of knowledge that we ran out... More

If you are in the area....this is an interesting stop but I wouldn't travel to Santa Rosa just for this. It is an homage to Charles Schulz and a chance to see how Snoopy and Charlie Brown were created

Make sure to visit every nook and cranny. We even saw a kite-eating tree. Simply the best little museum around.

The museum is small, but packed full of interesting facts about Shultz. One was is devoted to tiles of comic strips from floor to ceiling (perhaps 20 feet high!). There is a lovely little park, and an ice skating rink that they call Snoopy home ice.

Cute little museum that provides a lot of interesting information about the life of Charles Schulz. The museum itself is not very large but there are enough exhibits to make a trip worthwhile.

Very entertaining stop for Peanuts fans. Everyone is so friendly. Worth stopping for. If you take one of the free tours, they share so much information. Loved it!

One of the reasons I visited Santa Rosa was simply to visit this museum, and it was just as good as I hoped. Do go on the docent-led tour if you can - you learn so much. Allow plenty of time to revisit the beloved comics and learn about the life of Charles Shultz. As someone else mentioned, this museum... More

I had visited a couple of other times with only adults but this was my first visit with children. The 5 year old loved playing outside the museum much more than the inside. There is a labyrinth in the frying that he lived going through over and over again. He also loved being able to touch and hug the large... More

For anyone who is a fan of Charles Schulz & the Peanuts gang, this is a must see. Or if you just like cartoons in general. Well-designed museum where you can spend hours perusing.
