This was on my bucket list from seeing the ice arena, to visting the actual museum, and it was very tasteful. We were fortunate to have a docent who actually worked with Mr. Schultz, and shared his personal stories. The museum is tastefully furnished, and many artifacts including many cartoons that are placed on huge murals and walls. I found... More

Small charge of $10, was well worth it. Very interesting history of Charles, and lots of information on the Peanuts gang.

If you love(d) Charlie Brown and Snoopy et al, take a break from Sonoma or Alexander Valley wine tasting and stop in (just off Rt. 101). A lot of kid-friendly space but also a thrill to review strips, office rproduction and biographical info. for those who grew up on "Peanuts". Also, nice to see Schultz philanthropic sports sponsorship(s) highlighted. A... More

This museum is dedicated to the Peanuts comic strip characters and Charles Schulz who created them. The ambiance of the building is welcoming and laid back. There were comic strips displayed everywhere. An area was dedicated to Sparky's office (that was Schulz' nickname). Outdoors had Peanuts characters and the kite eating tree. Across the street was a skating rink he... More

If you were growing up seeing the Peanuts like myself, you will definitely enjoy this visit. Located in Santa Rosa, California, you will get a chance to see all of the original works of Mr. Schulz, truly amazing how he created these characters. You will still laugh at the jokes and will have a smile all the time during your... More

The Charles M. Schultz Museum was a delightful surprise. We expected to take maybe 45 minutes to a an hour to tour and we ended up staying there for much longer than that. We felt like we were almost in his home since it was such an intimate setting. Seeing the skating arena and having lunch at the Warm Puppy... More

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
