The Cartoon Museum re-launched at 63 Wells Street on 1st July 2019! The design vision for the museum was led by Sam Jacob Studio, who used the language of cartoons and comics as inspiration for the new architecture.
The Cartoon Museum champions cartoon and comic art, highlighting its value to culture and society. Through our programme of exhibitions, events and workshops, we aim to:
Conserve & provide access to Britain’s cartoon and comic art heritage
Encourage participation in and raise awareness of a popular art form
Support new work by cartoonists and comics artists
We are a registered charity, run by a small team of staff and a Board of Trustees.
The Museum is fully wheelchair accessible
