  • This was a very nice museum. They had some nice statues to take selfies in front of. We had a good time with that. There was a guided tour but we ended up leaving it because he was getting too deep in...  more »
  • This place is a gem and the staff is incredible. Worth the visit whenever in the area. A lot to discover and enjoy. 
  • It´s a very small museum but if you are a fan of Snoopy, Charlie Brown etc, go! There´s a video about the museum and Charlie Schulz´s life. Would be better watch it at the beginning of your visit.

  • A must for any snoopy, charlie brown, linus, sally, lucy fan. Expect to spend at least 2 hours reading all the great ol comics.
  • A fun and friendly place to visit and take the kids. The guides we encountered we a great source of information and told some wonderful stories as well. Lots of things to see and activities for kids. Not a full day experience, but a fun afternoon visit.
  • Museum honors Mr. Schulz and reminds us of why the Peanuts characters are to be adored. In addition to plenty of historical documentation to make it a bonafide museum, there are kid-friendly areas to enjoy and occasionally special kids' activities. Plenty of photo opps with large statues of Peanuts characters and a mural of comic strip tiles. Colorful comic strip tiles even adorn the bathroom.
