The Charles Schulz Museum

The Charles Schulz Museum

Santa Rosa, California is the home to the Charles M. Schulz Museum. Here visitors can relive their childhood by enjoying the exhibits and displays that bring the Peanuts comic strip characters to life.

The museum opened in August of 2002 and has welcomed over 500,000 visitors from around the world since its opening. The museum is home to various changing exhibits as well as permanent exhibits. Included in the permanent exhibits is a re-creation of Schulz’s studio which includes the drawing board the Schulz used from the earliest days of his career. It also includes personal books, photos and other memorabilia. The museum even extends to the outdoors where the Snoopy Labyrinth allows visitors to explore its Snoopy shaped path. In the Great Hall view two murals created by Japanese artist Yoshiteru Otani. One mural is tiled out of 3,588 comic strip images. It depicts Lucy holding a football for Charlie Brown. For a trip back to some of Schulz’s earliest work, visitors can view the Nursery Wall exhibit that depicts Snoopy walking like an actual dog on all fours and Charlie Brown leaping over a candle stick. These were created by Schulz in 1951.

The museum parking is RV friendly. Admission for adults is $10. Senior Citizen admission (62+) is $5. Children and students are $5, while those under 3 are free.
