A museum full of Teddy Bears? The most expensive teddy bear? This I must see! We woke up early to start our west side tour of Jeju. It was a really foggy day today. As I drove here, I passed by the Alive Museum. Argh! That was also in the itinerary. I guess I didn’t check properly to see that I can reach the Alive Museum first before the Teddy Bear Museum. But that’s ok. It’s about 5 mins drive away.
We parked at the Teddy Bear Museum and Play Kpop is just beside us too. You can walk over to Play Kpop if you like, for a kpop experience. My companions are not kpop fans, so I guess I’ll leave that for my next trip here. There are a lot of other attractions near here too.
Now, the Teddy Bear Museum. I didn’t expect it to be quite big. There are so many teddy bears here that it just drive me nuts. They are super cute! You can meet some “famous” bears here too. Can you guess who they are?
There are three sections here which are the History Hall, the Art Hall and Teddy’s Forest.
The History Hall displays antique teddy bears and bears that depict scenes from different eras.
I like the display of the teddy bears from different scenes. There are a lots of scenes like one from Titanic, Disneyland in 1995 and this one here from 1997 in Hong Kong.
The Art Hall displays teddy bears that depicts some famous art works. I find it really cute and funny.
The World’s most expensive bear! She has her own luggage too!
We didn’t stop by the café to have a drink but we walked pass it to go to the garden. The Teddy’s Forest is a nice garden you can walk through. You can feel the fresh ocean breeze of Jeju and find teddy bear sculptures featured in various themes like a teddy bear family on a picnic and the Korean black bear frolicking together. There is a show here but due to the foggy weather, it was cancelled. Bummer.
Visit the Teddy Bear Republic shop where you can get some souvenirs to bring home with you. There are so many cute bears and other items to choose from. You can also meet more “famous” bears here. Can you find them in the photo below?
Before we left, we went to see the Elvis teddy bear show in the Elvis theater. You can see Elvis bear singing some famous Elvis song with his band.
If you love teddy bears, this is place you should not miss. There is so much teddy bears to see!
