The Tubbs fire completely destroyed the home of the Peanuts cartoon strip creator. But while the flames came close to the Charles M. Schulz Museum, they did not damage it.
The gallery and education space dedicated to the famous cartoonist’s work was able to reopen its doors on Sunday.
"We were evacuated and lost power, but otherwise the building was OK," says museum marketing director Tracey Pugh.
Pugh says more than 160 people visited the museum opening day and that she and her colleagues are now focusing on their first major post-fire event, happening next Sunday, Nov. 12. "It'll feature Snoopy and Peanuts," Pugh says.
