Part of the joy of London is the many small museums that can be found - from the Sir John Soane collection in Lincoln's Inn to the William Morris Gallery out in Walthamstow - small enough to be enjoyed in a single visit and with an individual perspective on their subject - if you really enjoy cartoons and the people who create them you will enjoy this museum notwithstanding some of the other reviews which appear here. It is not a museum of children's cartoons, although the greats have their place, it is a British cartoon museum and is in Britain where cartoons originated - so don't expect Superhero's in profusion. You will laugh if you take the time to actually read and look at the cartoons. I suspect you will enjoy it even more if you are aware of the history of cartoons as the upper gallery just doesn't have enough space to provide more than a glance at the rich history of this quite British subject. I will freely admit to having just become a friend of the gallery and for the first time today went into the area reserved for children's courses (because there were no children there today) - clearly the children's courses produce some very good work. Yes there are volunteers who are asked to ask how you heard of the museum, and will provide further assistance if you need it.
