Visit the Cartoon Museum

Opened in 2006, The Cartoon Museum, a stone's throw from the British Museum is a museum OF political cartoons, comic strips and books.

The museum is a charitable trust and receives no public funding, but gathers together around 1200 exhibits, from the 18th century to present, and houses rare and original artwork on loan from The Beano, the Dandy, and Topper alongside satirical works by artists such as Gerald Scarfe and Steve Bell. The museum also runs frequent events and cartoon workshops for children.

The museum relies on entry fees to remain open, and entry is £5.50. It's open Tuesday- Saturday 10.30-5.30 and Sunday 12 - 5.30. For more information, visit http://www.cartoonmuseum.org/
