Kids and families, exercise your own Schulz-like creativity with interactive, Peanuts-themed activities throughout the exhibit:
Inside Snoopy's Doghouse
Readers didn't have to see the inside of Snoopy’s doghouse (which they never did) to know Snoopy was an eccentric character with many interests. Enter Snoopy’s doghouse and the imagination of the famed beagle, where you'll find a slew of fun, hands-on activities. Dress as one of Snoopy’s well-known personalities, like Joe Cool or the Flying Ace; personalize Snoopy’s novel’s perpetual opening line, “It was a dark and stormy night…” by adding prose of your own; and trigger famous sounds from Snoopy and the Peanuts gang!
Tap out a tune with your feet on this oversized grand piano. Perhaps you'll inspire someone else to take to the dance floor, where Snoopy's footprints show his signature moves beneath the disco ball.
Color the Gang with Digital Crayon
Take Peanuts to the digital age in this fun, high-tech interactive. Use the touch screen to choose colors, then with a digital “crayon” you can fill in an image of the Peanuts gang projected on a giant screen.
The Peanut Gallery
Create your own animation and have it brought to life in a zoetrope, a spinning cylinder that weaves a series of static images into the illusion of a single animation.
Costume a Character
Dress up your favorite Peanuts characters hanging on a magnetic wall with seasonal clothing and accessories.
Fifty Year of Peanuts
Touchscreen displays allow you to browse through a virtual library of Peanuts compilation books. Touch a book cover on the virtual bookshelf, and start flipping through to find your favorite era and strips.
