Charles Schulz Museum

Commitment to Providing Accessible Programs

SANTA ROSA, Calif.- On Tuesday, March 5, the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center will host a Free Sensory-Friendly Family Day from 3:00-5:00 p.m. Families needing a quieter environment will have the opportunity to engage in sensory activities and explore the galleries at their own pace while the museum is closed to the public.

This is the third event of its kind at the Schulz Museum as part of its ongoing commitment to providing accessible programs for all audiences. “We recognize the need for appropriate and affordable opportunities for families to explore in a way that meets their specific needs,” Education Director Jessica Ruskin said.

Visitors to the March 5 event will have the opportunity to watch an animated Peanuts special in the museum’s theater with the lights up, explore building with KEVA planks, and experiment with water beads and no-mess finger painting. There will be a designated quiet area for families and individuals in need of a break, and sensory kits and noise-cancelling headphones will be available throughout the event.

Exhibitions on view during this event include Then Came the Dog, exploring the life of Snoopy, Behind Peanuts: The Little Red-Haired Girl, an in-depth look at the inspiration for Charlie Brown’s unrequited love, and Without Words, highlighting the artful techniques Charles Schulz’s employed when telling stories using illustration alone.
