Charles M. Schulz Museum – Santa Rosa, California

The Charles M. Schulz Museum memorializes the life, career, and cultural contribution of Peanuts creator, American cartoonist Charles M. Schulz.

When Charles Schulz published the first Peanuts comic in October 1950, he created a wave of interest in his characters and storylines that would continue for generations. The Charles M. Schulz Museum captures the magic of Schulz’s creations and preserves thousands of items related to the franchise. Visitors to the Museum can take in the one-of-a-kind collection while learning more about Schulz as an artist, the inspiration behind his lovable gang of characters, and the cultural impact of Peanuts. With celebrated cartoonists and animators such as Matt Groening (The Simpsons), Jim Davis (Garfield), and Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes) citing Schulz as an inspiration, the Museum pays homage to a man whose influence is present in the work of his contemporaries.

The Museum also offers a research centre for academics looking to broaden their understanding of Schulz and his many creations.
