"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.

It was cute, but kind of boring for my taste. My favorite part was the main movie theater. They had an artist lecturer speaking in the afternoon. I also got to fold a piece of paper into the shape of Snoopy's house by following instructions, so that was nice.

This museum has well-curated exhibits about Peanuts and Charles Schulz' life, including his original drawing studio and a wall he painted for his daughter's bedroom (moved here from Colorado). You can vote for your favorite Peanuts character for President, get a crushed penny souvenir, and take lots of photos with large Peanuts characters out on the lawn and grounds. Be... More

We visited this museum and it brought back a lot of memories of our childhood love of Charlie Brown and his friends. Beautiful exhibits of the birth of this iconic comicstrip and the man behind it all. Loved it!

If you are touring wine country and need a break from wineries (especially if some in your party are not into wine), this museum can make for a fun change of pace. We spent about 45 minutes here, enjoying Peanuts strips and learning more about Charles Schultz. One could easily spend another 45 minutes or so watching the movies offered,... More

We visited with our 11 year old grandson this week and enjoyed our two hour tour through the history of Charles Schultz's imagination. The museum is nicely done, with a variety of permanent and temporary exhibits. The mix of cartoon panels from over the decades, historical events that included his characters, a bit about his life, all made for an... More
