The museum is currently closed and will reopen in spring 2019.

A museum dedicated to the very finest examples of British drawings, sketches, cartoons, caricature and comic art.

The museum exhibits the very finest examples of British cartoons, caricature, and comic art, with the aim of making the creativity of animation – both past and present – accessible to all.

As such, the collection is incredibly diverse, ranging from 18th-century prints to rare and original artwork on loan from the Beano, the Dandy, and Topper. Gillray, Giles and Steve Bell are among the other artists whose work is on display.
