    Funny cartoons, satirical cartoons, comic strips and caricatures: there’s plenty to entertain at this small museum in London’s Fitzrovia.

    The collection of over 6,000 pieces explores the place of cartoon and comic artwork through British history, from the 1750s to the present day.

    You'll see classic wartime cartoons, as well as familiar faces from beloved British children’s comics including The Beano and The Dandy. A number of caricatures lampoon celebrities, politicians and heads of state: The Queen at the Queen Vic by political cartoonist Wally Fawkes (aka Trog) depicts The Queen pulling pints behind a bar.

    As well as its permanent collection, the museum also hosts temporary exhibitions showcasing specific comics or artists. Previous shows have focused on publications including Viz and the 2000 AD Judge Dredd comics, as well as cartoons by the likes of Ronald Searle and Martin Rowson.
