Charles M Schulz Museum and Research Center

July 3rd, 2015

     I’m a fan of Snoopy and the other Peanuts comic strip characters that were produced by Charles Schulz. The bits of humor and wisdom provided by those daily comic strips were eagerly ready by myself and, of course, many others. My June 2015 Road Trip from home in Palm Springs included a visit to the museum which serves as a shrine to the comic strip characters and the famed cartoonist.

     The Charles M Schulz Museum and Research Center, opened in 2002, is in the City of Santa Rosa, California. It’s the repository for the Snoopy and Peanuts gang comic strip drawings and related memorabilia produced by famed cartoonist Charles M Schulz (November 26, 1922 – February 12, 2000 ) over a 50 year period. The museum compound also includes a large gift shop filled with Peanuts characters items along with the Redwood Empire Ice Arena that Schulz owned. The last Peanuts comic strip was published on Sunday, February 13, 2000, the day following Schulz’s death from colon cancer.

     The grounds of the compound feature a number of large replicas of his various Peanuts gang characters. They include Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy Van Pelt, Woodstock and eight more.
