There is no charge to see the collection, runs on a donation basis plus sales from the gift shop. It is opened daily from Memorial Week-end thru mid-Sept., 8a.m. til 7p.m. Off-season tours are given upon request.

Thank you for the nice review. One correction tho. I don't sell the duplicates, I give them to the law enforcement or ambulance people to give to children caught in a trauma situation. Thank you for visiting Teddy Bear Town.
