  • It is masterfully created. I liked “Peanuts”, but after coming here I have a much greater appreciation for Mr Schultz’s works. He was a master.

  • A must do if you’re a Peanuts fan. It’s cool to know you grew up with something so special. Staff very helpful. Lots to see on the property. Beware of children.

  • My family visited today and absolutely loved it! Our youngest is 15 and we enjoyed the whole thing. The displays were very fun and also very educational. Absolutely loved the way the comic strips were incorporated into everything, including the bathroom walls!! And there is nothing more fun then putting four adults in a room and seeing who is capable of folding a red dog house and drawing the classic Peanuts characters!! What a great place for people of all ages!
  • There's fun for all here. I arrived around noon on a weekday and the museum was populated mainly by adults. There are changing exhibits as well as permanent ones (like the recreation of Schulz' office/studio). Right now one of the exhibits shows who the people were that inspired the various Peanuts characters. Very enjoyable. There's also a large room with kid sized tables and supplies for drawing. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
  • My friend's cats are named Linus and Lucy. That should set the tone for this review. My 50 y/o friend was beyond excited to spend the day at the Shultz Museum, absorbing all the information on display. The exhibit we viewed less interactive because of COVID (heavy on the text- so could have been less fun for little kids ) but they change the exhibit often. the kids' playroom is spectacular, with inclusive activities for sensory-sensitive kids. The gift shop usually has one-of-a-kind items that are not available elsewhere.
  • This is a cool museum with great employees. If you are a student don't forget to bring your student ID. There was no wait and all the route was filled with interesting facts and beautiful comic strips. This is a great place for kids, there is one room where you can color and learn how to make some origami figures. There is also one room where you can see movies! I saw Charlie brown in love with the little red hair girl. It was beautiful and really funny. There is one gift shop and just across the street there is one ice skating rink and one coffee shop.
  • Did a side trip to this place from Rohnert Park on a girls trip since a couple of them are big Peanuts fans. Very cute museum to see which includes a little video discussing Charles Schulz. There are lots of original comic strips he drew and a creative room upstairs where you can color, draw, or do origami. The kite-eating tree is on the patio and lots of figurines of Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, and of course Snoopy.
