Snoopy and the Red Baron
Elmhurst History Museum
120 E. Park Ave.
Elmhurst, IL 60302
The exhibit tells the full story of the charismatic and beloved character from its early origins to the detailed research on all aspects of World War I that Schulz brought to the strips for authenticity. Visitors will learn about this favorite Peanuts storyline through high resolution reproductions of Schulz’s original comic strip artwork; World War I artifacts; photographs; film clips, and themed objects and ephemera inspired by Snoopy as the Flying Ace from toys and model airplanes to dolls, books, and more. Museum visitors can also step into character as the Flying Ace by donning flying caps and goggles for a photo-op next to Snoopy’s doghouse.
Event Cost: Free with museum admission
