Visit Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, dedicated to "Peanuts" comics and featuring 7,000 original comic strip drawings and various artwork. See the recreation of Schulz's work area, with his original drawing board. You'll meet the evolving personae of Snoopy, carved in a 43-layer wooden sculpture, and see a mural of Lucy and Charlie Brown containing 3,588 comic strip images painted on 5 x 20 cm (2 x 8 in) ceramic tiles. You can learn to become a cartoonist in the education room, where hands-on activities invite would-be artists of all ages (it's included with the price of admission). Browse through original artworks created for the comics, see Shultz's personal items, such as ice skates and a bowling ball, and take a walk through a labyrinth in the shape of Snoopy's head. You'll find other treasures outside the museum, including a cafe and ice skating arena. Put Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center into our Santa Rosa family vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Santa Rosa.

  • 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.
  • This is a very special place -- much more than a museum and gift shop! If I had a child and lived in Santa Rosa, we would live in the world of Charles Schultz, Charlie Brown and Snoopy and the gang! Do not miss this. If you haven't been there, the next time you visit Sonoma Coast, Napa Valley, wine country, etc., put this place at the top of your list of things to do!
  • A great place for Snoopy/Peanuts lover! Though it is somewhat a small museum, it is worth a visit if you haven't been there. As of July 2016, the prices were $12/ticket for an adult and $5/ticket for student/children.
  • A beautiful modern museum filled with Peanut history. I love the comic strip tiles that adorn the walls. My favorite part is the research room-- where one can spend time coloring, drawing or creating. It's just a fun idea that I think all adults could use a time- out and indulge the inner child.
