Take that, Charlie Brown! The artists putting the pain into Peanuts
Visited early on a Sunday evening, booked tickets in advance for the exhibit to avoid being disappointed. Throughly enjoyed the exhibition, mostly a visual experience with plenty of strips to read aswell as cinema with a showreel from some of the more famous peanuts TV specials. More interactive elements were towards the end when you could be photographed in Lucy's famous booth. Along with drawing you own peanuts comic strip. Once finishing the exhibition, there is a lovely gift shop full to the brim of schulz merchandise to spend as much or as little as you like. I could have easily broke the bank though. Amazing space with an amazing history doing amazing things for and with creatives.
