*The Teddy Bear Museum has ceased its operation from November 30, 2013
Thanks to a contributor, I’m able to share these here. On my N Seoul post, I mentioned about *Teddy Bear Museum which I give it a miss. Please visit here for direction. Admission ticket for this museum cost KRW8000 while the package which include museum and observatory cost KRW12000, but there’s a catch, you need to do the museum tour first before proceed to the observatory. This Museum exhibits shows chronicle history of Seoul from past to present through the use of teddy bears. It shows how Seoul has changed and developed over time from the olden to modern days. The dioramas are posed in scenes recreating historic events as well as various aspects of Seoul lifestyle.
There are two exhibition halls, namely traces Seoul’s history of the Joseon Dynasty to modern-day Seoul. The dioramas depict manual labour construction during the old days.
These dioramas are actually moving

Melihat poto2 ini jadi kepingin ke Seoul, berharap bisa menyelinap di koper students Korea yg mudik setiap summer…. L.o.L!!
The whole idea of a Teddy Bear Museum made me laugh.
They’ll definitely be on my list for my next trip to Seoul. Seoul must specialise in such odd little museums. I loved the Museum of Chicken Art. http://richardtulloch.wordpress.com/2010/03/24/seoul-korea-traditional-hanok-stay/
So interesting! I never could have dreamed of this. Fascinating and Fun.
Thanks for dropping by! There’s actually Mr bean teddy displayed there as well!
It is a very curious idea to represent historic facts of a Country by teddy bears dioramas. The idea was to attract kids to the history of their Country? I love Hello Kitty, it reminds me of my childhood and teenage years, and I must confess that in my actual thirties I´m still a fan of Hello Kitty, I even bought a Hello Kitty MP3 about 3 years ago, so I would visit Hello Kitty Cafe if I had the opportunity. By the way, thanks for stopping by my blog.
Perhaps you got the point there! I think hello kitty is pretty universal and for all ages.
The teddy bear exhibit looks fun! Very detailed.
I’m neither pro nor con Teddies but this is charming! I’m gong to post a link to it on my Facebook page for BlondeBrunetteTravel. Hope that’s OK with you!
Heya. Sure i’m ok with it. Thanks for dropping by and share it with others :)
Lol, cute Teddy Bear!
Didn’t know that there’s such museum! :D
Ah, i went to this Hello Kitty Cafe last month. It’s cute. And about this panda museum? Thank you, I love this share about Panda.
There are so many weird museums in Seoul! Was it worth the money?
True! the trick eye museum looks interesting too. Have u been there? For the teddy bear museum, if you like teddies it definitely worth the money.
The Trick Eye Museum was a lot of fun–definitely weird. I wrote about it here: http://world-walk-about.com/2012/03/26/trick-eye-museum-messing-with-masterpieces/
I also went to a toilet museum in Suwon…that was completely weird–but free!
I’m indifferent to teddies…but I do like strange museums, so maybe that one will go on my list :)
