The finest examples of British cartoons, caricature, & comic art
Location: 35 Little Russell Street, WC1A 2HH
Description: On 23rd February 2006 London's first 'cartoon museum' opened to the public.
It's situated here at 35 Little Russell Street, a stone's throw from The British Museum.
The Cartoon Museum exhibits the very finest examples of British cartoons, caricature, and comic art from the 18th century to the present day.
Combining art with humour, this addition to London's museum-cum-gallery scene is refreshingly vibrant. From political cartoons of Bush and Blair to rare originals on loan from The Beano, The Dandy and Topper, The Cartoon Museum is a place for reminiscing over childhood favourites whilst contemplating cartooning controversies of recent years.
