  • Billing itself as a type of museum is misleading. I love comics and my wife is an illustrator and we were both excited about visiting this place. We were both really let down. It's very small and they...  more »
  • Very small personal collection. Seemed obscure, although I was familiar with a few things. The Owner and staff were very friendly. My wife and I stopped in with friends and I actually felt bad that we...  more »
  • Quiet and quaint with a very small collection. Nice bookshop at the front but they best part is the unisex bathroom. All the visiting cartoonist have left their mark on the bathroom walls.  more »

  • It’s literally just a small room with some comic book art, and a random cubicle. Don’t waste your time or money here. It only held me there for like three minutes at best
  • I try to be pretty fair and open with reviews, but ToonSeum was a total let down. My wife and I drove pretty far out of the way because I'm a big comic and art fan. It cost us 6.00 each to see the exhibits, which was literally a single10'x20' room with maybe 30 pieces of art; all of which just looked like they were clipped from newspapers. That was it. Huge let down.
  • We enjoyed our time here however we felt as if it had more of an art gallery feel than a actual museum.
  • Stepping into the ToonSeum instantly brings back all sorts of childhood nostalgia. It may not be big, but they're passionate about their mission and offer plenty of great events for kids and adults alike.
  • It was pretty small, but had so many interesting things! They change their exhibits every few weeks since they only have two rooms to really work with, so make sure to get there when they have something you like! The man working the front desk was super friendly and chatted with us while we browsed the gift shop place. He was very informed and told us about upcoming exhibits. You need to go at least once!

Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.
