“Snoopy and the Red Baron” from the Charles M. Schulz Museum, June 18-Sept. 10, 2022

This traveling exhibition from the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, titled Snoopy and the Red Baron, tells the full story of the charismatic and beloved character, from the origin of the story line, to how Schulz researched all aspects of World War I to bring authenticity to the strips.

The exhibition will delight fans who grew up with the Ace, and introduce new audiences to Snoopy’s adventures in the sky. It includes 38 framed reproductions of original Peanuts strips, photographs, a selection of themed objects and ephemera, two animation film clips, and informational graphic panels.

A perfect photo op for the WWI flying ace fans is Snoopy’s doghouse! Became the famous aviator and pose with the iconic red “flying” doghouse.

Additional children's hands-on activities are available for young fans and their adult partners to be creative together; learn how to draw Snoopy, make a paper airplane or sit together for Snoopy’s Memory Game.
