Comments about Smart Destinations Cartoon Art Museum:

This place is small and you'll probably only spend about 30-40 minutes here tops, but if you are in to comics (past & present) this is not to be missed. When I visited the place was not busy and that's a shame because it's a diamond museum hidden amongst flashier ones nearby (SFMOMA, etc.). There was cartoon artwork of all kinds. Kids will love the Pixar animation, "regular folk" will like the old-fashioned cartoons of their youth, while more hardcore comic-con types will appreciate the graphic novels, Marvel, and more. Not just for geeks!
