I like to visit all types of museums, especially in my hometown. The Toonseum has been on my list to visit for a long time and I wasn't really sure what to expect. If someone is really into comics, this is a must see place....More

We did a quick visit to the museum. Parking is a problem but there is metered parking or a garage couple blocks away. It was interesting to see all the cartoon strip displays. My son loved seeing all the characters

The ToonSeum consists of two rooms--period. During our visit, one exhibition (focusing on "how to be an artist/cartoonist" schools and programs) was running a few days beyond its original scheduled termination date, and presumably it was being held longer because the second exhibition was not...More

Not the busiest of places…which I liked. A very decent-sized, interesting collection of a wide variety of cartoon art.

... But mighty in what they're able to pack in the two rooms. We decided to visit with our older teen daughters, but we recognized a lot of the "older" cartoon drawings. I was afraid that they'd be bored because there didn't seem like a...More

If you like cartoon art (and I do), this is a great place to spend 30-60 minutes. $8 to get in, but they have a nice collection that spans everyone's interest, with art, cels, exhibits, etc. And the woman who was in charge was nice...More
