The Schulz Campus
Just across the street from the Museum is Snoopy’s Home Ice, which was designed and built by Schulz and his first wife, Joyce. Visitors can ice skate or seek comfort in the warmth of the Warm Puppy Café, which looks out onto the ice and was favorite of Schulz for breakfast and lunch. His table remains reserved.
Just beyond the Ice Arena, is Snoopy’s Gallery and Gift Shop, a shopping mecca for Peanuts fans, with some must-see Peanuts features, including a stained glass rose window and carpeted wall murals featuring Snoopy and Woodstock.
Every Day at the Schulz Museum
Discover new depths of Charles M. Schulz’s life and art in our 100-seat theatre. With a current schedule of Peanuts animated specials, biographical films and interviews featuring Schulz and other cartoonists, visitors are invited to have a cinematic experience learning about Schulz, watching beloved Peanuts animated specials and creating new memories with friends and family. View the theatre schedule for this month.
We believe in the power of creativity. Become a cartoonist yourself. Draw, animate, learn, discover! Our hands-on Education Room is a place for visitors of all ages to practice cartooning, color Peanuts characters, fold Snoopy’s doghouse out of origami, create your own hand-drawn animation for our giant zoetropes, learn more about our exhibitions, and enjoy other activities as scheduled. The Education Room is free with price of Museum Admission. It is open during regular Museum operating hours (except special events or rentals).
In addition to three changing gallery spaces, the Museum has a number of permanent exhibitions, from the Colorado Nursery Wall that Schulz painted for his daughter Meredith, to the outdoor Snoopy Labyrinth that visitors can meander through as they contemplate their relationship with nature.

Museum Volunteers Available to Answer Questions
The Museum offers a daily docent-led tour during the summer months. Tours depart from the Museum’s Great Hall every day at 11:30am (tour is at 12:00pm on the following Mondays: June 30, July 28, and August 25). Led by the Museum’s knowledgeable docents, visitors will get a 30-minute introduction to the Museum.
Visitors unable to join the docent-led tours need not worry! Museum volunteers are stationed throughout the Museum daily and year-round. They are more than happy to answer visitor questions, discuss Schulz’s life and art, and some volunteers can even share personal stories about Schulz.
