The Ground Floor Galleries

There are two galleries on the ground floor of the museum - the first is used for the special exhibitions which change four times a year and explore, in depth, the work and lives of cartoonists, and the themes and subjects explored in cartoons and comic art. The second gallery tells the story of cartooning from the 18th century to the present day, with artwork from artists such as William George Cruikshank, Phil May, Giles, Ronald Searle, Mel Calman, Martin Rowson and many others.

Young Artists Gallery

This room is used for museum education, but can be hired out especially for daytime meetings and office away days. We work closely with local cafe and restaurant partners who can provide catering for these specific events.
