Where are we going today?
Kids LOVE cartoons and comics (we don't know any kid that doesn't!) - so what better place to take the kids to where they can enjoy cartoons and not be sat in front of the television, than Toonseum!
Toonseum is a wonderful, small and boutique style museum in downtown Pittsburgh dedicated to cartoon art and comics.
This isn't specifically a children's museum, so younger kids might not apprecaite it, but the older kids certainly will enjoy looking at the wonderful art along the walls.
It's a great place to introduce kids to the world of art, and show them that it can come in all different styles and forms.
Toonseum always have a number of exhibits which rotate (which means that there can always be something new when you re-visit!)
Exhibits range in topics, and include all sorts of amazing themes - including the wonderful world of the super hero! Sometimes these exhibits are a great, fun way for kids to dress up as their favorite hero and check out all the cool art related to their character!
Toonseum often hold fun events just for kids too! Make sure you keep track of what's on, because the events are always so much fun and very family-friendly!
So turn off those TV's, and let's go enjoy some cartoons!

Any Top Tips?
If you have old comics, why not donate them! You might see them hanging on the walls for others to enjoy! .

What a SCAM! Tiny venue screening films and tv shows. Paid a large sum to take my child to a Godzilla launch. No launch, just a comic for $24, not even a good comic. The exhibit was Brenda Starr. Who even liked/read that?
