To The Moon: Snoopy Soars with NASA

Exhibit on view: November 16, 2019 – April 12, 2020

Just before the first man landed on the moon, Charlie Brown and Snoopy soared through space with NASA’s Apollo 10 mission in May 1969. The exhibition To the Moon: Snoopy Soars with NASA examines the history of Apollo 10 and the Peanuts characters’ role in that flight and in the NASA Manned Flight Awareness safety program.

In To the Moon: Snoopy Soars with NASA, visitors will see Snoopy’s trip to the moon in the March 1969 Peanuts strip series (besting NASA’s record by a few months!) and learn about the NASA’s Silver Snoopy Award program.

The exhibition also contains an interactive space where visitors can build and test a lunar rover, create a comic about landing on the moon and climb in and explore Snoopy’s doghouse.

To the Moon: Snoopy Soars with NASA is organized and toured by the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, Santa Rosa, California.
