This museum aims to teach visitors about the history and possibilities of the nation’s most overlooked art form and cultural export. Charlie Brown, Spider-Man, Horton, and Mr. Magoo, the museum pays homage to the tops in the field and sheds some light on their long-neglected creators. You can find stuffy museums that feature modernism, post-modernism, or reverse-post-post modernism in any city, but San Francisco gives you the informal Cartoon Art Museum. Long-forgotten favorites jockey for space with new creations, so you and your child will have a lot to explain to each other.
