It Was a Dark and Stormy Night

Saturday night, the 4th, was the member party for our new exhibition, It Was a Dark and Stormy Night, and we welcomed our visitors in from the rain. One first time visitor to the Museum was enjoying trying out our interactive shadow box. I stopped in the following d‎ay which was scheduled as a Free […]

Our Friend, Gene Cernan

America lost a true hero a couple of days ago. Gene Cernan passed away in a hospital in Houston, Texas. Gene (standing to Snoopy’s right) and fellow Apollo astronaut Tom Stafford (on Snoopy’s left) were well loved here at the Museum. On a weekend in January 2009‎, the two astronauts visited the Museum to celebrate […]

A Beautiful New Year’s Day

It’s a glorious day to inaugurate our new deck. Lots and lots of families are celebrating at our New Year’s balloon drop. Happy New Year to all from all of us at the Schulz Museum! –Jean Schulz

After 50 Years, 4 Million Albums Sold

It was an intimate ceremony in Berkeley at the original Fantasy records studio to commemorate Vince Guaraldi’s soundtrack of A Charlie Brown Christmas going quadruple platinum.

After Two Years, We’re Almost There!

The deck around the redwood tree in the Museum courtyard is just about done, so I wanted to share some photos. Here is the bench with its first admirer. I am so glad we figured out a way to protect this beautiful redwood while also providing a space for visitors to gather. I know guests […]

Peppermint Patty – a “rare gem”

I wanted to talk about a question which was left for us at the Museum. It said simply, “I want to know more about Peppermint Patty.” It made me smile because Sparky recognized that she was a rather enigmatic character. I remember him saying that HE thought that some of Peppermint Patty’s problem was that […]

Snoopy and Belle in Mexico City

I’m taking a break from watching the construction of the deck around the Redwood tree at the Museum to attend the opening of a three month Snoopy and Belle in Fashion event in Mexico City. This is the pair of dolls by Anna Sui (above). Macario Jimenez is one of the new designers who has […]

Preserving our 100 Year Old Redwood Tree

I think readers can tell things that I am passionate about; this is one of them. When we chose this site for the Museum the trees around the property were very important to us, and architect David Robinson ‎and his team were very thoughtful about the trees. This redwood tree became the centerpiece of the […]

Photos from Comic-Con

Peanuts kicked off its partnership with the bi-partisan not-for-profit group Rock the Vote last week at San Diego Comic-Con during the mass hysteria. Thousands visited the Campaign Headquarters and pop-up shop where they cast votes for Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Sally, and Franklin; registered to vote in the real fall election; and of course, picked […]

The Museum Brings Out the Best in All of Us!

As I was walking through the Museum today, I noticed a man posing for photos in front of the nursery wall. He was mugging for his two daughters, but mostly for the French exchange student who is their guest. He just couldn’t help mimicking the expression of the rabbit on the wall, I guess. I […]
