The museum is fairly small but entrance is not expensive. I really enjoyed looking around the comic strips. They have some original sketches from well known comic books/graphic novels. Worth a visit.

It could be argued that we live in a golden age for cartoons but wandering through the small museum highlights that cartoons have a long and glorious history. There wasn’t an exhibit that wasn’t worth looking at, so although the museum consists of only a...More
