Most of the Peanuts’ holiday specials and cartoons that were around when I was a kid weren’t exactly new even then. They were always how I knew the holidays were near as a child. It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown told me it was almost time for free candy, and that Christmas was around the corner. A Charlie Brown Christmas meant Santa Claus was almost here. I still watch those holiday specials with my kids today.
You might expect a museum dedicated solely to the Peanuts characters to be in the US (there is a Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center in California), but Tokyo, Japan is the place where the new Snoopy Museum is located and it seems very cool. It has Snoopy statues and different exhibits celebrating all things Charlie Brown and his gang.
The museum will feature tons of rare collectibles, and original and unpublished works from Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz. The café in the museum is appropriately called Café Blanket and serves pancakes with Snoopy and Woodstock burned into them.

The Snoopy Museum opens this weekend, and is expected to remain open for a limited engagement through September 2018.
