Santa Rosa Travel Blog› entry 4 of 4 › view all entries
Charles M. Schulz original from Minnesota moved and lived in Santa Rosa, California.
He had his studio at home in this city where he lived for about the 30 last years of his life.
Charles was a firm supporter of sports this is why he built a skating house near his place, he loved to play golf and tennis too and he loved to give children the opportunity to play these games.
For lunch he used to go to the local cafe near his house where he sat everyday on the same chair at the same table, he was quite man and people tried not to disturb him. I actually met a lady who knew him and she told me this.
He was the creator of the famous comic Peanuts and in the Schulz museum we will see his first works and also his first drawings of Snoopy, Charlie Brown and Co.
You will also find here the many trophees that he won in tennis and in golf, Charles M. Schulz organized a couple of tennis tournements himself where he invited to participate players from other countries.
The entrance to the museum is $9 for adults, if you get a brochure at the touristm info there you have a $2 off coupon. Students pay $5 and you are not allowed to take pictures in most of the areas. It´s open from 12 a.m till 5 p.m.
There´s a nice souvenir shop at the museum and the prices are affordable in comparison to the other shops that are near by and i found them much more expensive.
By the way, i got a snoopy :)
