Family Activities:

Charles M. Schulz Museum


Charles M. Schulz Museum

2301 Hardies Lane, Santa Rosa, CA

Families will find original drawings and comic strips here, along with the largest collection of Peanuts artwork.

There is a toddler play area perfect for younger kids to get to know Snoopy and a theater with animated Peanuts specials and documentaries always running. Parents will love the exact re-creation of Schulz’s art studio and the kids will love the hands-on art room where they can create their own comic strip, draw and paint, or create their own artwork. The exhibits and comic strips are always changing at the museum so families will love to return often.

Santa Rosa became Schulz’s adopted hometown in his adult life. He raised his family here and opened the Snoopy’s Home Ice Rink here in 1969. Schulz, who had the nickname Sparky since he was a child, died at his Santa Rosa home in 2000. He produced more than 18,000 comic strips over his 50 years of work.

Families will want to spend about two hours at the museum.

11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. From Memorial Day to Labor Day the museum is open daily and from Labor Day through Memorial Day the museum is open Wednesday through Monday and closed on Tuesday.

Free parking is available.
