    Rotating exhibits and an amazing gift shop. They even have artists in from time to time. A great spot to visit while you're in town visiting or even as a local to unleash your inner geek.

    Great small museum - it won't take long to see and is only $7, but worth it. Overheard someone saying that a Sam Keith exhibit was coming soon too.

    A delightful, unique museum featuring the world's greatest cartoons and cartoonists, and it has been rented as a special event space on a few occasions.

    A small gallery-sized museum, but it regularly has pretty cool exhibits. Worth coming back every couple of months

    Small but has a lot to see. Young children would not enjoy that much but my teenager loved it.

    Get a tomoko maruyama card to send to friends. Much cuter than a traditional post card!

    Está muy padre el museo y muy didáctico pero tiene muy poco, son como tres cuartos nada más y cuesta 7 dólares. Aunque tienen una tienda bien surtida de cómics.
