Peanuts Guide to Life: The Charles M. Schulz Museum
Peanuts decades ago through passing along the Sunday Comics section to me at a very young age. I do hope parents still do this. I loved getting that newsprint all over my hands. (My husband has introduced the world of Schulz to our daughter through books, records and videos.) I even did my first ice skating routine to the Peanuts theme song, so you can imagine what it was like for me and my family — three generations, grandparents, kids, grandkids — walking into the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, California. After days of family trip squabbling (you partake in this, too, yes?), we all found pleasure in taking a nostalgic walk through Schulz’s life and his work. Here are some highlights . . .
There are many sculptures of your favorite characters you can pose with — or some bizarre hybrid of one. This one reminded us more of Fraggle Rock than Peanuts! There’s also a great activity center where you can make your own comic strips, among other fun activities.
You’re a good man, Charles M. Schulz!Feel like continuing a walk through years past? Check out our lullaby renditions of these iconic bands.
