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...More

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.

Unique in its kind, at least in Austria, it is always worth visiting this museum. Besides the general exhibition on Austrian cartoon artists, there is always an interesting special exhibition. We enjoyed the current one about peace in cartoons very much.
