TeddyVille Museum Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Penang’s TeddyVille Museum is dedicated to all things teddy bear. Check out teddies from around the world, from tiny to human-sized, including antiques from the early 1900s. You’ll also see the Mini Penang exhibit, where miniature bears are dressed up and posed in reenactments of key moments in Penang’s history.
As you wander around the museum, look out for the teddies dressed as notable figures from Penang—including footwear designer Jimmy Choo, who was born in George Town. Then for a sweet souvenir, head to TeddyVille’s gift store, where you can purchase your own collectible Steiff-brand bear from Germany.
To save time at the entrance, buy your ticket in advance. Guests of the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton, where the museum is located, pay a reduced admission fee.
