This looked like a fun place, so we decided to give it a try. We both grew up enjoying the Peanuts comics and TV specials. The building is beautiful and the two prominent wall art displays (wood relief of the evolution of Snoopy and a comic strip panel made up of many comic strips) were very nice. There are a few other interesting things, but for a museum of this size, it seems the exhibits were limited. I guess there is only so much one can expect, but we were expecting more than we saw.
The first volunteer we talked with was great. Very informative and seemed provide just the right amount and detail of information. As we were exploring the upper level, we overheard one of the volunteers who had "cornered" a guest and was extending the conversation beyond what the guest wanted. The guest was being very polite, but was clearly trying to wrap up the conversation. Rather than becoming "trapped", we decided to dodge that volunteer and continue the tour on our own.
Overall, we didn't think it was worth the cost, but there were some fun aspects. It seems many people really enjoy their visit, so don't rely solely on this review.
You can pick up a brochure at the Santa Rosa visitors center at Railroad Square (and probably hotels and other places) which includes $1 off per person.
