The Karikaturmuseum Krems (museum of caricature in Krems, Austria) is a museum dedicated to cartoons, editorial cartoons and humorous drawings. The museum collection concentrates on European caricature of the twentieth century (and after), with special emphasis of caricature in Austria, of course.

Besides a permanent presentation of the work of the Austrian cartoonist Manfred Deix, usually two temporary exhibitions are shown, one of which showing political cartoons.

The Karikaturmuseum was built by Gustav Peichl, an Austrian architect and — unter the pen-name IRONIMUS — also a political caricaturist. The museum was opened on September 29, 2001.
