About The Cartoon Museum

Combining art with humour, this addition to London's museum-cum-gallery scene is refreshingly vibrant. From political cartoons of Thatcher, Brown, 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.
