  • Just lovely. The museum is not large. I spent 1 1/2 hours and saw everything. I was tempted to enter the cartoon drawing room but that would have taken too much time. It looked fun though.

  • 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.
  • As a Beagle lover, I had to see the Peanuts Museum and it didn't disappoint. Although my mother and I enjoyed it as adults, it's such a cool place for families. To our surprise not only was the museum super cute but there was also an ice skating rink, a cafe, and two stores one in the museum and one by the ice skating rink. It's definitely a nice day out with the family!
