We loved this museum. Less of a museum more of a place to indulge your inner five year old. There are however some really old bears and lots of information and even more nostalgia! The lady who runs the place couldn't be more pleasant or helpful and is perfect for the museum. Its a warm, fuzzy wonderful place to lose... More

We went as part of the gold card offer. My two young sons enjoyed it, as did the wife. It was nice to see and the attention to detail and displays were good. Clean. Steep stairs to climb. Not my idea of fun but a must if you are a teddy bear fan.

Not my thing. Definitely quantity over quality in terms of the bears. Not really much for young children to do. Not worth the price unless you are really into teddy bears or have it as part of the five museum bundle.

Brilliant place to visit, there's lots to see and the bears are so cute! You can take your photograph with the bears which is lovely. There are stairs so not suitable for anyone who has difficulty in climbing them.There is a joint ticket you can buy here which makes it much cheaper? You can buy this joint ticket for £15.95...

We arrived to visit the museum along with another couple, the first couple turned right round and walked out. We did the same when seeing that the entry charge was £5.99 each!. We were not able to find out in advance the prices from their leaflets or advertising. We now know why. I am sure that this is a very... More

Ok so here's the good points: - my 2 year old liked going in the rooms and touching the items he could touch - the staff are very nice. Here's the rest: - I wouldn't class this as a museum, it's like the old house of someone who hoarded teddy bears - it's too small for the price - we... More

My Wife had wanted to visit the Bears for some time now. We were not disappointed. It's a grand place with bears of all sizes and shapes, all done in interesting separate rooms, the bedroom is great as there are about 7 bears in bed, and the kitchen too. It starts with the history of the teddy bear. You can... More
