TeddyVille Museum @Penang

Well, a family friendly gateway wouldn’t be complete without visiting this place. Located away from the busy town centre, Teddyville Museum is situated at Batu Feringgi. To be exact it is actually at the Ground Floor of DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang.

For your info, I love all kinds of cute stuffs. 🙂

To save the hassle paying on the spot, I purchased the online ticket via KLOOK few days before I came here. Not much savings tho, but its convenient. Moreover I can collect credits for my KLOOK account with any purchase I made through the web.

On a side note, there is a RM10 voucher attached to the ticket. You can use it as rebate from their souvenir store. However it is only applicable for purchase of Teddy Bear / T-Shirt.

Before leaving, don’t forget to take photo with this 10ft tall Bear at the entrance.

This Teddyville Museum is like a Little Penang. Using the human sized bears and miniature sized bears to bring out the Malaysian culture, but also exhibit the popularity of Penang island. Be it food, street, tourist spots and also some history of Penang.

I’m amazed on how much effort they put everything into so detailed and fine. Especially the hawker food stalls at Gurney Drive. Thus, I also like how they explained every segment in story board. Oh ya…did I mentioned that the bears have very smooth fur too. You can gently hug these furry bears  😀

Plan your visit here with your child. Its fun and educational. I’m sure they will enjoy this place.
