Snoopy Museum Tokyo, the first-ever satellite museum of the California-based Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, has opened in the Roppongi district of the city.

The new museum will feature exhibitions that showcase the achievements and personality of Charles M. Schulz, the creator of “Peanuts,” through original comic strips and other artwork from the Charles M. Schulz Museum collection with changing exhibitions planned through September 2018.

In addition to the rotating exhibitions, the museum will also host a variety of seasonal events and workshops with new content that will change with each collection.

Approximately 150 items, including 60 original cartoons selected by Schulz's wife Jean and untold stories behind the artwork, will be on display at the opening exhibit–"My Favorite Peanuts."

The museum will be home to Brown’s Store, a museum store that will sell more than 500 exclusive “Peanuts” products, and Cafe Blanket, which will serve food and beverages with a “Snoopy Dish Component.”

“Japan is a special country for us,” says Jean Schulz, president, board of directors, Charles M. Schulz Museum. “'Peanuts’ has been loved by Japanese people for more than 40 years. The Snoopy Museum Tokyo that is opening shortly will not only be an important opportunity for Japanese fans but a great gift of us. The satellite of the Charles M. Schulz Museum is the first attempt in the world and can hold various exhibitions for over two years.”
