Set in a beautiful 17th-century medrese, this is one of the city's more unusual museums. Where instructors once lectured students in Islamic philosophy, they now give lessons in illustration, engraving and screen-printing.
The permanent collection, with pieces dating back to the 1870s, illustrates the long-standing popularity of caricature and satire in Turkey. One of the most recurring themes is the insidious influence of the West.
Temporary exhibitions are devoted to Turkish and foreign cartoonists. The museum also hosts Turkey's only humour library and an archive open to the public upon request.
