The Museum of Cartoon Art opened in Greenwich, Connecticut on August 11, 1974. Three years later, we moved to the Ward Castle in Port Chester/Rye Brook, New York, where we operated until moving to Florida in 1992.
In this poster-sized photo essay, produced by Alf Thorsjo and published in Sweden, Museum founder Mort Walker gives a tour of the facility. The introduction is above. The second and third parts are below.
We know that many of our readers visited the Ward Castle and have fond memories of The Museum of Cartoon Art. We hope you enjoy this nostalgic look back.
