For my latest adventure, I set off to Japan to attend the opening of Snoopy Museum Tokyo in its new and larger location in Grandberry Park, Machida. Before heading to Tokyo for the Museum opening, we visited two of Japan’s beautiful cities, Kobe and Kyoto, to check in with a couple of our licensing partners. […]

Linus must be checking to find the most sincere pumpkin patch. Will it be near you? Sparky used to say that Halloween was the perfect holiday because there were no expectations. (Now that I think of it, I hadn’t heard of him creating costumes, but I don’t doubt that he became involved.) Across from the […]
Since May 2018, the Museum has been building two new 600-square foot classrooms, accessible from the Museum courtyard, just beyond the Kite-Eating Tree. Since 2008, the Museum has been hosting classes and camps in the Annex classroom, a short walk from the Museum. The new building will replace the Annex and allow the Museum to […]
Mary Ramsperger Peterson came to visit the Peanuts strip she donated to the Museum last year. The strip, originally published on June 20, 1997, is currently on view in the Museum’s exhibition Peanuts Goes to Camp. Mary’s family was an important part of Sparky’s life after he came home from the Army. They met at the […]
I recently took a week away from Santa Rosa to go to Southern Arizona, to the Chiricahua Mountains to study owls on an Earthwatch Institute expedition that was billed as Following Forest Owls in the Western U.S. The drive from Tucson soon took us up into the mountains, past Portal, Arizona, to the Southwestern Research […]
I had the privilege of attending some events at NASA’s Johnson Space Center with Snoopy in late April for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 10 mission. It is wonderful the invitations this famous beagle gets, and I am always happy to tag along. There were, of course, several highlights to the long day and […]
“In May 1991, I went to see the Schulzes in their California home in Santa Rosa for the first time. I knew by then that Peanuts were well known in the USA, and financially very successful, too, though I had no idea of how much so. I was in for a couple of surprises then.” […]
“Dragged kicking and screaming into the twenty-first century.” That describes me. Hey, what can I say, I still use a BlackBerry! When we were planning the Schulz Museum opening in 2002 (almost a generation ago), we banned photography, feeling it could be misused and might be a distraction for other visitors. Later, when the idea […]
At the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, we often hear questions like, “What research is done here?” or, “What is the research about?”. Our answer is that the Research Center holds the archival collection (or historical records) surrounding the life and works of Charles M. Schulz, and that the archives are available to […]
A recent trip to London gave me an opportunity to revisit Good Grief, Charlie Brown! at my own pace, rather than racing through showing it to others (see my previous blog post). The exhibition has received numerous positive reviews and has been well-received by visitors. This was especially evident as I wandered through the interactive area during […]
