The virtual exhibit includes an interactive tour of the in-person exhibit at the Windgate Gallery, an exclusive video, "A Charlie Brown Christmas: A Classic in the Making" featuring Charles Schulz, producer Lee Mendelson, and animator/director Bill Melendez that details the sometimes magical and often madcap making of "A Charlie Brown Christmas," and downloadable fun activities.

The exhibit is also compatible with mobile devices.
