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.
We loved this museum. If you’re into Peanuts and the history of how it all began, you’ll love this place. So much great information here. The gift school could be bigger! We did enjoy the gift shop across the way though near the ice rink. This really isn’t a place for little kids.
If you are a lover of the Peanuts this is the place to be. I had such an amazing time viewing the exhibits and learning interesting facts about Mr. Schultz’s life. To see how Charlie Brown was first depicted was amazing. You get to learn about his early days, war service, his murals that he drew in his children rooms. Go visit!!! My only and ONLY critique would be to add to the time line the introduction of Franklin. Mr. Schultz was very firm with having him represented as was stated in the book (the Complete Peanuts Family Album) sold in the museum store. He was approached by an editor to remove Franklin when he was shown in a “integrated” school. Despite the backlash from society and the editor Franklin remained.
My friend's cats are named Linus and Lucy. That should set the tone for this review. My 50 y/o friend was beyond excited to spend the day at the Shultz Museum, absorbing all the information on display. The exhibit we viewed less interactive because of COVID (heavy on the text- so could have been less fun for little kids ) but they change the exhibit often. the kids' playroom is spectacular, with inclusive activities for sensory-sensitive kids. The gift shop usually has one-of-a-kind items that are not available elsewhere.
