About Tokyo's "Snoopy Museum"
The "Snoopy Museum", born as the sole branch museum of the "Schultz Museum" which is located in America's California. The museum was open for a set period of time in Roppongi, Tokyo, but closed its doors in September of 2019. It has now been completely renewed in a building 2 times the size of its previous, and has re-opened from the 14th of December, 2019. Inside of the museum there are both permanent displays as well as exhibitions that are changed every half-year, it's packed with things to see.
The new museum has a total of 3 floors. First, we are going to head to the first floor, the "Opening Theater". With white cubes spread around the area, both Snoopy and his friends freely run around the room and as a whole brings up your spirits.
Exhibition of Vintage Goods and Production History
At the Charles Schultz Gallery, who was the creator of the show, you can see the history of how the show was produced through various pictures and videos. There is also the Peanuts Gang Gallery where you can see things about the comic "Peanuts" as well as watch episodes and take some trivia about the Snoopy and Peanuts Gang. Each character has their own area and displays, there are also various vintage goods to see in each area.
As you walk outside on the terrace, you are greeted by snoopy wearing golf attire as well as a large amount of his relatives and friends all drawn on a large wall. From this terrace you are able to see the entirety of Minami-machida Grandberry Park.
The All-new "Snoopy Room"
The second floor holds one of the best places to check out after the renewal. In a large, white room, there are various large Snoopy exhibitions. The largest of these has a total length of 8 meters and sleeps upon a giant safety bed. There are also various other Snoopy statues with various poses and attire such as skating, impersonating and many more unique poses. There's no doubt this room will become a huge spot for photography.
This room, with its yellow walls, was made in the image of Woodstock, a good friend of Snoopy. Here you can read the books from "Peanuts", view some original cartoon shorts, and just relax.
