You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown

January 08, 2018

In 1950 Charles Schulz launched Peanuts, a Sunday morning comic that would eventually become the most successful strip of all time, reaching a peak readership of more than 350 million in 75 countries during its 50-year run. Add to that the many televised holiday specials and endless merchandise, from Snoopy dolls to Charlie Brown lunch boxes, that features the Peanuts gang, and it’s easy to see why Schulz’s creation has become a permanent part of American culture. During your stay with us, we encourage you to take a quick 15-minute drive to the city of Santa Rosa, where the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center offers you a chance to relive many of your fondest childhood memories as you explore not only the artwork of Schulz himself, but also the delightful and awe-inspiring tributes to the Peanuts gang rendered by renowned artists from around the world. See the evolution of Snoopy hewn in 3.5 tons of wood by Yoshiteru Otani, tour a life-size replica of Charles Schulz’s very own artist’s studio, and laugh at rare strips catalogued, contextualized, and displayed for your viewing pleasure at this one-of-a-kind cartoon museum.

Address: 2301 Hardies Ln, Santa Rosa, CA 95403
