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. « less

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!

What a disappointment tho it may reflect the low socio-economic level of Sonoma County. Even my 95 year old mother remarked that the area was depressing.

As a life long fan of Peanuts, I was really looking forward to visiting this museum. I wasn't disappointed! This place is so charming with beautiful murals on the wall and Peanuts comic strips framed throughout. Charles Schultz's office where he wrote each strip is also there. We went next door to the Warm Puppy Cafe and had hot chocolate... More

The Museum which is next door to Charles Schulz's Redwood Hockey Arena is located in a residential area in Santa Rosa, which itself is about an hour north of San Francisco. It is a must-see for visitors to the Bay Area who are fans of the Peanuts strip/commercial property. It has a small gift shop, a theater and a media... More

If you grew up with Peanuts this is a must stop. It's more than a museum. It's like a time capsule. Very well done exhibits. There are things to do for kids and interactive stuff, but really it's geared towards adults and I would say probably more toward adults who remember the strips as well as the TV shows and... More

By far the happiest musuem I have ever been too! The galleries featuring Schulz's Peanuts strips were just brilliant and it was so nice to walk around and see other visitors laughing and smiling too. Really interesting information on Peanuts, Schulz and the publishing process. A good range of souvenirs on offer in the shop too. Definitely worth a visit... More

Based on the online description, we expected it would take about 2 hours to tour the museum and see it all. Wrong! This is a gem of a place. So much history! Don't miss the reproduction of Schultz's studio - and be sure to visit the Warm Puppy Cafe across the street. Need a souvenir? You won't find a more... More
