The National Museum recognises that cartooning is an important part of Australia’s political culture. Cartoons are an invaluable resource for exploring Australian history, each providing a snapshot of ideas and beliefs surrounding major public events. Approximately half of the works in this year’s exhibition have been donated to the National Museum.  These help build a wonderful archive of Australian history as seen through the eyes of some of our best cartoonists.
