The Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center and Sony Creative Products Inc. have announced that the SNOOPY MUSEUM TOKYO will be opening its doors on April 23, 2016 in Roppongi, Tokyo. This temporary museum, which will be open for two and one-half years, is the first outside of the United States dedicated to the art of Charles M. Schulz, with its founding museum—Charles M. Schulz Museum—located where Schulz lived in Santa Rosa, California.
My Favorite Peanuts, the first of five rotating exhibitions organized by staff at the Charles M. Schulz Museum, features an engaging selection of approximately 60 original comic strips specially selected by Jean Schulz, the wife of Peanuts creator Charles Schulz. These strips reflect her favorite themes in Peanuts. The exhibition also includes personal gifts she has received from fans over the years. Also, as a side note, we wanna mention that Designer Chip Kidd will be designing the promotional material for this event.
Each of the rotating exhibitions offers a unique experience where visitors can view original comic strips, early works by Charles Schulz, vintage merchandise, and other valuable artifacts from the collection of the Charles M. Schulz Museum.
Snoopy Museum Tokyo’s museum store, named BROWN’S STORE, features products specially designed for the Museum.
Also, CAFE BLANKET will offer Peanuts-inspired food and drinks.
