British cartoon & comic art from the 18th century to the present day


Become a Friend today and support the life of cartooning
As Britain's only museum of cartoons, caricature and comic art, the Cartoon Museum enriches people's lives by reminding them of the heritage of humour.  Through its innovative exhibitions and events the creativity of cartoon art, past and present, is made accessible for education, research and, above all, enjoyment.
Support from our Friends goes directly towards our exhibition and events programme, so that our audience experiences cartoonists - from Hogarth to H. M. Bateman to Steve Bell - and characters - from Rupert the Bear to Dennis the Menace to Bagpuss.
