Charles M. Schulz, the creator of the beloved Peanuts cartoon strip, was a man who touched many lives through his work. At the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, there are exhibits on the man, the characters and the items that they inspired.
There are Peanuts animated television specials and interviews with Schulz shown throughout the day in the museum’s 100-seat theater. Outside is a Snoopy Labyrinth in the shape of the dog’s head. Call ahead and request a viewing in the Research Center to get a better understanding of Schulz through personal letters, photos and biographical works. At the Museum’s store, souvenirs of Schulz, Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Pigpen and all the Gang are available for sale.
The Museum is open every weekday except Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Museum is open every day in the summer (Memorial Day through Labor Day). It is located in Santa Rosa on the corner of West Steele Lane and Hardies Lane (2301 Hardies Lane). For more information, call (707) 579-4452. | www.schulzmuseum.org
