Snoopy Museum Tokyo at “Grandberry Park” in Machida, Tokyo is now open!
Snoopy Museum Tokyo in Roppongi closed on September 24, 2018, as planned. The museum had five exhibitions and welcomed over 1.36M guests during the two and one-half years since it opened in April 2016.
On December 14, 2019, Snoopy Museum reopened in a brand new location at Minami-machida Grandberry Park in Machida-city, Tokyo. As an official satellite of the Charles M. Schulz Museum, it will continue to display the art of Peanuts through original comic strips and other exhibits, along with exclusive collections of original items in its museum shop, BROWN’S STORE.
The adjacent annex building features the PEANUTS Cafe where visitors can immerse themselves in the world of Peanuts and enjoy the greenery of the park at the same time. In addition, there is a room specialized for workshops such as “plush doll making” that achieved popularity in Roppongi. The new environment is spacious, approximately double the previous Roppongi site, providing more room for everyone to enjoy their time with Snoopy and the whole Peanuts Gang.
Snoopy Museum in Machida will host special exhibitions that rotate every six months. The inaugural exhibition The Beagle Scouts are Here! (now on extended view through January 11, 2021) features original comic strips on loan from the Schulz Museum.
The inaugural exhibition will be followed by Snoopy and His Siblings (on view January 16 – July 11, 2021), which will feature original comic strips on loan from the Schulz Museum highlighting Snoopy’s relationship with his siblings.
