  • Old fashioned teddy bears, slightly eerie and not engaging for pre teen boys. Young children did seem to enjoy it  more »
  • Our daughter was excited to go, we paid £17 for the 3 of us and it took 15 minutes if that to walk around a few displays of some teddies. Really not worth the money.  more »

  • A small quaint museum. Bit pricey considering how small it is, but well worth a visit if your prefer your museums a bit more alternative and old fashioned. You can buy a ticket so you can visit 5 little museums for the price of 2. Very sweet.
  • Me and my daughter really enjoyed ourselves here. It wasn't too expensive. Which makes a change. It was really lovely learning about teddy bears
  • So much better than I expected. I enjoyed it as much as my granddaughter!
  • Kids loved it. Beautiful bears but bit pricey and would be better if you could buy a combined ticket with dinosaur museum.
  • Its not the biggest museum, but they've done a great job with preserving what they have, and it's not expensive to get in and have a look - would recommend a visit.
