This facility focuses on researching and collection American cartoons, and is the largest collection of its kind - 450,000 cartoons, 36000 books, 51000 serial titles and 2.5 million comic strip clippings. It's fascinating, particularly the running concurrent temporary exhibits. Even though the exhibits are only in a small area of about three room, they are always fascinating! To see the collection outside the exhibits - original art, books - you have to visit the Library. The catalogues - topic, cartoonist, manga, manuscripts - are online and the item you want must be requested two days prior to your visit. Use the attraction website.

Billy Ireland Cartoon Library And Museum Reviews & Ratings
Wonderful, go check it out!
Decent collection of comic/cartoon artifacts. It's hard to complain about a free attraction, but I was expecting a little more with the word museum in the title (three rooms of items). Good to combine with the nearby Orton Geological Museum, which is also free and smallish.
LOVED the Cartoon Couture exhibit. The Exhibit was laid out in an organized manner & highly detailed. Such great content. The front desk staff were friendly & welcoming. I highly recommend any exhibit at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Musuem. Such a great time!!
Interesting, but has very little Billy Ireland information or cartoons. Lots of interesting drawings by various cartoonist.
Nice dive in American cartoon history . Was Some education for my kid too.
