Following in the footsteps of its very popular — and not particularly scientific — Dr. Seuss and Jim Henson exhibitions, the Museum of Science and Industry now gives Chicago a show devoted to comic artist Charles Schulz and his great, enduring creation, the newspaper comic strip "Peanuts." The show will include biography, a recreation of Schulz's drawing studio, and many examples from the strip. A special emphasis is said to be placed on the impact of "Peanuts" on popular culture. The requisite interactivity will come in the form of a piano, like Schroeder's but bigger, and in chances for kids to do their own drawing.
"Charlie Brown and the Great Exhibit" is Thursday through Feb. 18 at the Museum of Science and Industry; timed-entry tickets are $3-$5; 773-684-1414 or msichicago.org
