Charles M. Schulz brightened the world for over 50 years with his Peanuts comic strip, which debuted October 2, 1950. With Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the rest of the lovable Peanuts Gang, Schulz explored the emotional territory of friendship, disappointment, faith, and tolerance.

Thirty Peanuts comic strips, Schulz quotes, and photographs illuminate the story behind the creation of this most popular and influential cartoon strip—along with unique objects and photos from MNHS collections that reveal how Schulz's formative experiences in St. Paul stayed with him for the rest of his life.

During your visit, enjoy interactive activities for all ages, including a lounge with books, puzzles, and drawing tables to sketch your own version of Peanuts fan favorites.
