Charles M. Schulz Museum, Santa Rosa, CA by Irvin Lin of Eat the Love

“It’s totally up to you. We can go or we can go home.” AJ said to me, leaving me with the final decision. I hemmed and hawed and said “Let’s just go home…” until my FOMO kicked in when all my friends said they were going. I never had a huge desire to go to the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa. Growing up, I certainly enjoyed reading my Peanuts cartoon and the day after Thanksgiving I always found myself glued to the TV, watching A Charlie Brown Christmas. But it never occurred to me to make a pilgrimage to the museum for the man who drew the cartoon, no matter how influential he was in the artform. In the end, I had no regrets for caving into my FOMO as the museum itself gave me a newfound appreciation for a master storyteller who dedicated his life to bringing joy to the millions that read his artwork.

This post made me so happy! I had absolutely no idea that this museum existed. The Peanuts comic strip has such a special place in my heart, as I know it does many people. I am going to have to add this museum to my ever-growing list of places to visit. Thanks for sharing such a happy thing with your readers!

Why doesn’t Charlie Brown’s helmet protect his ears!! That’s what makes him so cute and eager-looking when he gets suited up, and I never noticed that before! Thanks for posting these pictures!

And is that Steven Reigns I see in one of the pictures?

Love the one of you handing a cookie to Snoopy, with Woodstock right behind you. I want to hang out on a bench with them.

I thought I had been here, but now I see I haven’t. Did this collection once have a temporary home in SF that we all went to? It was very cool . . .
