The Karikaturmuseum in Krems qualifies as one of the most delicious and unexpected experiences I have had in recent times. Very conveniently located at the city centre, it opens a window into the real lives of Austrians, and their everyday preoccupations, which are at a far cry from the usual clichés.

This seemed like a nice museum if you spoke the language and understand the context behind some of the exhibits. I might add that some of the political cartoons worked even without a translation.

There was a variety of cartoon and caricature art. It would have been a lot more interesting if they also had descriptions in English.
