Map & Details>>

The only museum in the United States dedicated to the preservation and exhibition of cartoon art in all its forms, this little gem -- which got off the ground with a 1987 endowment from Peanuts creator and Santa Rosa native Charles Schulz -- is a show-stopper for 'toon lovers, whether kids or intellectuals. The 6,000 pieces in its permanent collection range from original comic strip panels to self-portraits of famous cartoonists. There are interactive and children's galleries and the museum sponsors seven major exhibitions a year. Currently, there are two, "Hate Mail: Comic Strip Controversies" and "She Draws Comics: Great Women Cartoonists," which run through June 8. Open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Adults $6, students and seniors $4, children 6-12 $2. Bargain tip: The first Tuesday of each month is "Pay What You Wish Day."
