  • It is masterfully created. I liked “Peanuts”, but after coming here I have a much greater appreciation for Mr Schultz’s works. He was a master.

  • My family visited today and absolutely loved it! Our youngest is 15 and we enjoyed the whole thing. The displays were very fun and also very educational. Absolutely loved the way the comic strips were incorporated into everything, including the bathroom walls!! And there is nothing more fun then putting four adults in a room and seeing who is capable of folding a red dog house and drawing the classic Peanuts characters!! What a great place for people of all ages!
  • 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.
