If you have a taste for skilful artistry and sharp satirical humour, don't miss this delectable little museum dedicated to the work of Strasbourg-born cartoonist Tomi Ungerer. His work for children is a delight, packed with quirky detail, and his more adult cartoons deliciously bawdy (though not for the easily shocked).

A charming exhibition of illustrations in a lovely building. Tomi Ungerer came from Alsace but lived in New York where he drew satirical cartoons against racism and the Vietnam war. His unusual illustrations for children's books are funny and beautiful. He lives in Ireland now . Worth a visit. His frog kama sutra drawings are a giggle

One of the funniest displays of 'erotic' art I have seen in ages.In the basement (of course). I recommend taking time to view this thought provoking display. Not a GREAT artist but commercially viable and communicates to a lot of people.

Well worth a visit - what an imagination he has! Don't necessaily recommend the basement exibition if with children - how do you explain Frog Kamasutra to youngsters?!

Three floors of exhibitions in an attractive house with good aircon which added to the pleasure on a hot day. Don't miss the sexy frogs in the basement!

The museum is small, but very nice. The highlight was all of the Cathedral drawings. They were quite funny. Beautiful building, nice location.

I won't advise you what to do about that. But if you like art even a little bit, even if you like art only a little bit, go see the cathedral the way Ungerer sees it. The upper floor has a gallery of his love affair with the forms and shapes of the Strasbourg cathedral . In a series of... More

Fantastic little museum, really easy to find, right next to the tram stop, but equally not far from the center to walk. Not sure if it was a temporary exhibition but there was a large section on Charlie Hebdo in light of what happened in January which was interesting.

Here we find an important collection drawings that draftsman and illustrator Tomi Ungerer, , donated to his native city of Strasbourg. The work is on view on a rotating basis in a thematic itinerary of nearly 300 originals including drawings for children's books, satirical and advertising drawings and erotica. You can find the collection of some of other authors.
