Everybody wants to laugh. It's the healthy thing to do for yourself. Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy and the gang were the cast of characters for Peanuts, a syndicated cartoon series appearing in newspapers around the globe, that got people thinking outside the box and laughing a lot. The creations of Charles Schulz, a prolific artist and cartoonist from Santa Rosa, California, helped others to look at the lighter side of life–sometimes through the eyes of a dog. Schulz is no longer with us, but his legacy is carried on by his family, friends and fans. You can visit the Charles Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa and learn all about this famous character through his memorabilia, actual cartoon sketches and unique items that offer insight into the visionary's way of making magic on pages.

When you enter the museum, a tile mural from Japanese artist Yoshiteru Otani in the Great Hall is comprised of 3,588 Peanuts comic strips printed on individual 2- by 8-inch ceramic tiles. Measuring approx. 17 x 22 feet, the tile mural features an image of Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown. It's fun to look at, but is just the start of an adventure that will keep you smiling. Sparky's Studio recreates the working studio of Charles M. Schulz, who was nicknamed Sparky, and rotating exhibits provide a reason to return time after time.
