Visit Charles M. Schulz Museum, dedicated to "Peanuts" comics and featuring 7,000 original comic strip drawings and various artwork. See the recreation of Schultz'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 his hockey jersey and cartooning trophies and awards, 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. Please check website for up-to-date hours.

  • Great Place, very calm but also very interesting. One of the few museums where we actually did not get bored. It's very interactive for both kids and adults. They have a theater to show some episodes and certain Documentaries about Peanuts. Awesome place and their admissions is fairly priced. Also, many laughs we're heard throughout the museum, the strips bring that much Joy.
  • Alex the museums coordinator understands the need for communities to come together and support each other all while keeping the history of Charles Schulz work alive and fun for this and future generations. They are constantly doing appreciation days and donating to less fortunate members of our community. Thank you for everything. Because of you, our community is a better place.
