Charles M. Schulz Museum in Sonoma County: A Mecca for Peanuts Fans

SnoopyThe Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center can be found right here in Sonoma Country. I just love the Peanuts gang, especially Snoopy whose antics remind me of my crazy corgi, Ellie. For more than sixty years, this group of precocious, angst-ridden children has situated themselves into our national consciousness. That’s why the museum honoring the internationally famous cartoonist who invented the Peanuts gang is such a popular attraction here.

Until his death in 2000, Charles “Sparky” Schulz was involved with each design stage of the museum and center. After his passing, his widow, Jean, along with close friends, family members, and museum and design professionals kept his vision in mind. The result: a beautiful and meaningful space to remember an extraordinary man.

The Museum features the largest collection of original Peanuts artwork in the world. Visitors can laugh at Schulz’s original comic strips, learn about the art of cartooning and Schulz’s role in its development, view a re-creation of Schulz’s art studio, watch animated Peanuts specials and documentaries in the Theatre, and draw their own cartoons in a hands-on education room.

The changing exhibitions highlight the stories, inspirations, and influences of Charles Schulz, and explore the art of cartooning and Schulz’s role in its development. See a complete schedule of exhibitions.

Events at the Museum give visitors opportunities to meet professional cartoonists, create hands-on crafts, learn about different cartooning techniques, and view some of Schulz’s favorite movies. See a complete schedule of events.

The Charles M. Schulz Museum, which opened in August 2002, is a place where visitors can fully understand the work of the famous cartoonists and cartoon art in general. It illustrates the scope of Schulz’s multi-faceted career, communicates the stories, inspirations, and influences of Charles Schulz, and celebrates his life and the loveable characters he created.
