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. An upcoming installation devoted to Looney Tunes grants fans of the eclectic critters with displays and insight as impressive as Wile E. Coyote's anvil bill. Cartoonist and executive director Joe Wos hosts everyone from puppeteers to comic-book sketchers who conjure characters before the eyes of guests in live events. Children ignite creative sparks at hands-on drawing tables while parents relive childhood simplicity by way of ink and paper prints. Postcards enable long-distance bragging to loved ones, and buttons and stickers declare toon adoration to casual onlookers and spy satellites alike.

Family memberships grant two adults and up to three children unlimited admissions to the museum for a year as well as invites to members-only events and signings. Families also garner 15% off workshops and gift-shop purchases, 25% off all limited-edition prints, and 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.

Very cool. As a fan of animation, comics and art in general I really enjoyed our visit to the Toonseum. It was an awesome piece of history and will definitely go back for future exhibits
