The museum is compact (not as big as the Disney Family Museum in San Francisco which I had compared it to in my mind) but well worth the cost and time.

What a nice diversion while we were in the area! The Schulz Museum is a wonderful place to visit. The modern style museum is simple yet engaging. The Peanuts store across the street allows you the opportunity to take home some wonderful memorabilia including some great classic collections of the comic strip.

I'm not a big Peanuts fan, but I did grow up with the comics and TV specials. Took a day trip here from the SF Bay Area based on a friend's recommendation and Trip Advisor reviews. I was pleasantly surprised that this small museum lived up to its billing! What a great museum - the building itself is very interesting, the exhibits were fun to look at it, and the grounds were lovely. Be sure to go in the grounds in the back of the museum and see the holograms. Also, be sure to visit the bookstore. The upstairs is like an extension of the museum, with lots of information about Schulz' involvement in hockey and Snoopies dressed in clothing from all over the world. I took my three kids, ages 10, 12, and 15 and they all enjoyed it.

This was a great museum. Simple and not overwhelming. The cartoons are timeless and we enjoyed some of the history behind them. I think this is more for adults than kids but they did have a scavenger hunt for the kids to work on while the parents were enjoying the cartoons. And be sure to go to the store as there are some more interesting things to see there and there is no charge.
