The Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, features exhibits and programs that highlight the life and art of the beloved cartoonist and international icon Charles M. Schulz (1922-2000), creator of the Peanuts cartoons. This is the largest collection of original Peanuts art work anywhere. This is a fun stop for families, or cartoon lovers, when you’re visiting Sonoma Valley.
You can watch animated Peanuts specials and documentaries in the museum’s theatre, and draw your own cartoons in the hands-on education room. Check out the outdoor courtyards. The sculptures are a hoot, and so is the Snoopy Labyrinth.
