Enjoyable but not enough English explanations. The museum is air-conditioned and isn’t unpleasant.way to spend an hour or two.

Interesting museum - apparently Deix being a continuous exhibition, supplemented by varying ones; currently focusing on the moon and thus Science Fiction, leading to a lot of Perry Rhodan on show

The Karikatur museum can be found easily. Unfortunately one part was under construction when we were there but we only had to pay an reduced entrance fee. The exhibitions are interesting.

I visited the museum without knowing anything about katikatures or the artist. It was interesting but I would not chose to visit if it was not given in a reduced price with the ticket for the kunsthalle museum in Krems. A disappointment was that allmost all images explanation were in German. And the audio guide not so useful.

Definitely the highlight of this town. A fun place to see and see it with the background to make fun about politics, stories, culture, etc.

When we visited this museum, its shows were dedicated to two cartoonist/humorists, Manfred Deix and Guillermo Mordillo. In addition to stills of the latter's works, there were also screens showing various short films of his cartoons, all involving his signature tiny people with big bulbous noses. We loved the museum, and thought its light-hearted atmosphere made a nice contrast to a day in Krems that had involved lots of monuments like the Piaristenkirche.

Caricatures by Austria's most renowned caricaturists, living and deceased. It goes without saying that you should know the persons made fun of to fully understand the implicit message of the respective sketch. Most foreigner's don't know even their name.

I have never come across Deix before but I found his work sharp and insightful. I only wish I was more fluent in German as a fair bit was lost in my translation. Some of his work is wicked but always fun. You cannot miss the entrance to this museum with the large statues outside.

A Part of the exhibition is dedicated to the history of Austria.
Deix is an excellent cartoonist whose depth and wit is only understood if one has followed "world events" of the past 20-30 years in Austria. A other part is for example the famous Mordillo - this is for everbody
