  • 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, th...  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 ...  more »

  • 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!
  • I'm a big comic and animation fan, so this place is like a Mecca for some. They change exhibits every few months and usually have gallery opening or guest speakers. Some catch my attention, others don't cést la vie. They also have a cute little gift shop in the lobby featuring the guest artist's work and other comic related items.
  • Cool idea. Very small. More like an art gallery.
  • I decided to stop by the ToonSeum since I was visiting, and was pleasantly surprised by the comics. I specifically went to see the MLK to March exhibit, which is a civil rights comic exhibit. The exhibit focuses on Martin Luther King Jr. And Rep John Lewis' fights for civil rights. It was very enlightening.
  • Don't waste your time, literally a hallway with some pictures thumb tacked to the wall.
