Tips for you
The teddy bears displayed over here are very cute and adorable. You can also get yourself a little (or more) teddy bear related items from the souvenir shop. Worth the visit!
“The kids loved it - and we got 150 photos!” We visited the museum a bit reluctantly and only because we had dragged our two children (10 and 15) round two scenic waterfalls and an archery practice place in the hours before. Our youngest daughter was definitely keen to do something that she chose. When we got there our suspicions seemed to be confirmed with a relatively high entrance fee (I think it was 6,000 won per adult) for what seemed to be a small place. However, once we got into the diorama room, both kids couldn't stop themselves from oohing and aahing the whole time. You really felt that somebody had fun putting it all together. It was in all the little touches (like adding little German flags to the 'storming of the Berlin wall' display) and the set ups such as the 'Bearacotta Army). As previous reviewers have mentioned, all of these are in glass cases so my husband (who is a very keen photographer with decent equipment) didn't deign to take any photos - our teenage daughter took over instead. Having just completed our photobook, I can only say that we had plenty of good shots, I could easily have filled 20 rather than 4 pages with good shots. We didn't miss any English explanations - the teddies really spoke for themselves. We also didn't approach it as a museum but rather as a fun place to look around. The re-enactments of historical events from the 20th century were also fairly self-explanatory. The shop was probably the only really boring bit since the selection was not particularly big and the prices, given the location, quite high. Overall, don't go if you want to learn anything about teddy bears but do go in with kids (or adults who appreciate the cuteness)
