Help us bring Snoopy to Virginia Beach next summer!
With your support, we can bring the Snoopy and the Red Baron exhibit to the Military Aviation Museum in July 2018. This traveling exhibition from the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center tells the full story of the charismatic and beloved character, from the origin of the story line, to how Schulz researched all aspects of World War I to bring authenticity to the strips.
From the Charles M. Schulz Museum, “Dressed in a leather flying cap, goggles and scarf, Snoopy took to the skies atop of his doghouse, which his imagination transformed into a Sopwith Camel biplane. Throughout the years, Snoopy’s dogfights against the elusive and infamous Red Baron, based on a real German flying ace named Manfred von Richthofen, captured readers’ hearts and imaginations. As their aerial battles raged on, Snoopy could often be seen waving his fist in the air and shouting “Curse you Red Baron!” a phrase that still lives on in popular culture. Snoopy and the Red Baron brings the full story of the World War I Flying Ace to life. The exhibition will delight fans who grew up with the Ace, and introduce new audiences to Snoopy’s adventures in the sky.”
