The Caricature Museum Krems is a top destination in the Wachau region and is Austria's only museum for caricature, pictorial satire and critical graphics.

The Krems Caricature Museum - Austria's only museum for caricature, pictorial satire, comics and cartoons - is located just a 5-minute walk from the Krems - Stein boat landing stage and the Danube, and attracts thousands of visitors to the Wachau every year. It is nestled between the historic center of Krems and the medieval old town of Stein in a variety of cultural enterprises and is an excellent destination for a day out for the whole family.

The Karikaturmuseum Krems is a lively place for the examination of caricature and satire, an open house for both cartoonists and visitors. Not least because of the entertainment value of caricature and satire, the museum succeeds in appealing to broad publics of different ages. Caricature inspires and delights both viewers and artists of all disciplines. The Caricature Museum Krems is a lively place for high-quality and socio-political exhibitions.
Manfred Deix was instrumental in founding the Karikaturmuseum Krems, the only museum for pictorial satire and critical graphics in Austria, where he is still represented today with a permanent presentation of past and present works. The Austrian caricaturist Manfred Deix died on June 25, 2016 at the age of 67. The works of Manfred Deix have long been works of art, classics of Austrian caricature and style-setting for many colleagues. The significance of his unsparing cartoons go far beyond the country's borders and were tireless in his criticism of social constraints.
