Northern California Has An Entire Museum Dedicated To Charlie Brown And It’s As Awesome As You’d Think

Just north of San Francisco, Sonoma County is known for its verdant vineyards, vibrant coastal beauty, and towering Redwoods, all wrapped up in spectacular California sunshine. Santa Rosa sits in the heart of this oasis as a hub of music, art, and tantalizing wineries. But while there is already plenty to explore in this delightful cultural mecca, Santa Rosa is also home to one of the most special museums in the entire state: the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center. The community’s beloved “Charlie Brown Museum” is a uniquely stunning tribute to Schulz and his cartoonist career, but it’s so much more than a simple homage to the iconic Peanuts Gang! Whether your first visit or your 100th, this massive 27,000 square foot complex has plenty of magic to discover and is the perfect family activity. Check it out:

While not officially owned by the museum, your visit to Santa Rosa and the Charles M. Schulz Museum should definitely include a walking tour to find all of the Peanuts statues that dot downtown. This iconic Peanuts haven is such an integral part of the community, and we absolutely love the heart behind every comic strip and art installment!

If you’ve ever visited Santa Rosa’s beloved museum, we’d love to hear about it! For more family-friendly things to do in Northern California, check out these easy, kid-approved hikes.
