Mission

What is the ToonSeum?

The ToonSeum is a small boutique style museum dedicated to the comic and cartoon arts. While the museum itself is quite small there are on average over 100 pieces of art exhibited at any given time. Exhibits rotate every few months.

It is a art museum for fans of the comic and cartoon arts. While there are often exhibits, and a limited number of activities for children it is not a children's museum. Like any art museum very young children may be a bit bored by looking at art on the walls. However the ToonSeum is a great introduction to an art museum setting by introducing them to the arts through characters they know and love. We often have family events, but it is best to call ahead or check our site for schedules.

The ToonSeum is an independent non-profit museum. We are 90 percent volunteer run. We are one of the very few completely independent arts venues in downtown Pittsburgh and one of only a handful of cartoon oriented museums in all of the United States. We are a museum for those who love comics and cartoons.

ToonSeum Mission Statement

The mission of the ToonSeum is to celebrate the art of cartooning. Our goal is to promote a deeper appreciation of the cartoonists and their work through hands-on workshops, community outreach, cartoon-oriented educational programming, and exhibitions of original cartoon art.
