Everyone loves Snoopy (and the whole Peanuts crew), right? Well, the world’s first Snoopy museum is in Tokyo’s Roppongi district – and it’s a lot of fun. My wife and sister-in-law convinced me to visit the museum, and I am really glad that I went.
Within the museum complex, there are rotating exhibitions, rare memorabilia, and a large merchandise store selling almost anything you can think of – with a Snoopy twist, of course. There is also a café (Café Blanket) with similarly themed fare.
I actually really enjoyed the experience. The exhibitions utilised various media and were interesting & informative, and brought back fond childhood memories.
I hear that the place can get quite busy weekends, so it is advisable to buy tickets online, which you can do via the Snoopy Museum website, linked below. Entry fees vary across five age groups from free to ¥2,000, though, because there is a predominant focus on the comic strip, I would recommend it more for at least children with a good level of reading.
Overall, a fun and nostalgic 90 minutes.
