Caricatures are best appreciated when you (and need to) understand the story. It is a difficult art no doubt and the exhibits are nice yet for a non German it is difficult to... read more

Small exhibition in 3 floors. The caricatures were excellent! Could not believe that they all were paintings. Very interesting to see how a picture of Michael Jackson was painted. The artist started by drawing a big smiley! Highly recommendable.

Caricatures are best appreciated when you (and need to) understand the story. It is a difficult art no doubt and the exhibits are nice yet for a non German it is difficult to decipher. I hope they add a little history and details of the artists along. It took me 30 minutes with a restless 4 years old. You can... More

This place is cool. I discovered it thanks to the internet. In fact if it wasn't for the internet I would have had no idea that this place existed. The staff are cool, but the thing about this art gallery is that it is dedicated to caricatures and cartoons. When I was there they had a temporary exhibition on the... More

... but the museum needs more space. It felt crammed, and in some spaces you inadvertently stood at awkward angles to the art making it difficult to properly take it in for full appreciation.

I lucked into this museum as I was wandering the smaller streets of Frankfurt down by the river. It is easy to miss but please don't. For me, it's an absolute gem. I have included some photos as my words would not do the artists and their work justice. From the Stones, Iggy Pop, John Lyndon,Marilyn Monroe the list is... More

I guess I had higher expectations, but it's more an art gallery, with indeed nice German comics, but nothing is translated, unless it's on the actual drawings in English (only a few), so if you don't speak German you're missing out. Also there are no explanations whatsoever, so it's interesting to see the various stage of a drawing put next... More

Even if you have no intention of going inside stop over and make a photo of a moose in coat. A peek on the entry will give you a rough estimate if you will like it or not.

Humorous and well presented. I wish they had English sub-titling that would have enabled us to enjoy it even more. Many cartoons by syfried on display.
