Cartoons are the words our eyes don't hate and our brains actually want to read. See the action happen with today's Groupon to ToonSeum, located downtown in the Cultural District. Choose from three different deal options:
- $4 for a one-day admission for two guests (an $8 value)
- $15 for a one-year individual membership (a $30 value)
- $25 for a one-year family membership (a $50 value)
As one of the few U.S. museums solely dedicated to the cartoon arts, ToonSeum animates minds of all ages with comic- and art-enriched exhibits that rotate every two months. Cartoonist and museum founder Joe Wos hosts everyone from puppeteers to comic-book sketchers who conjure characters before the eyes of children, moms, and Toontown escapees dodging villainous judges. Children ignite creative sparks at hands-on drawing tables while parents relive childhood simplicity by way of ink and paper prints. Lone comic-loving wolves may opt for the one-year membership and zap their way into members-only events and signings, along with 15% off workshops and gift-shop purchases, and 25% off all limited-edition prints. Family memberships facilitate the same Smurf-tastic discounts, plus one year of free admission for two adults and up to three children, along with two additional guest passes, which may be used at any time on friends, grandma, or Gargamel.

The ToonSeum: Pittsburgh's Museum of Comics and Cartoon Art
Perched in the Steel City's Cultural District downtown and staffed by passionate volunteers, the nonprofit ToonSeum pays homage to the art of the cartoon with rotating exhibits, kids' classes, and hands-on entertainment for all ages. Exhibitions have ranged from collections of original work to special displays honoring artists such as Pennsylvania native, Keith Haring. Contributing to the museum's ongoing educational mission, local cartoonists often donate their own time to teach fun-filled workshops or share the bleak realities of living with a talking cat.
