Cartoonmuseum Basel is the only museum and centre of excellence in Switzerland devoted exclusively to the art of narrative drawing, be it in comics, graphic novels, comics reportage, cartoons, satirical drawings or animated films. It collects individual works, curates exhibitions and shares knowledge about the genre. The museum contributes to the debate about the art of narrative drawing, and about the social and political issues it addresses.

The first time I came here, was for the architecture of the building. I indeed loved it, especially the hand rails of the staircases. Well, anyway, I came back a few times since and enjoyed the exhibitions they have. It's worth visiting and explore the area around it.
We came across this place by accident and almost passed it by. Thank goodness we didn't! It turned out to be a very entertaining way to spend hour or two. They were doing a Christoph Niemann exhibit, and his work is funny and insightful. It's a rare thing for me to go to a museum and pore over every single display, but that's exactly what I did here.
Fun swiss place
A small museum but with a lot of fun! The small library inside collects Cartoons from many different countries:)
Inspiring, and what a library. Go there if cartoon illustration is your thing!
Quant and a small piece of history!
