The TeddyVille Museum is also the abode of Mini Penang, where miniature bears are dressed and placed in small sets that represent the many attractions that Penang has to offer. It is a cute and cuddly summary of the sights and experiences you should never miss upon a visit to our delightful island.

For RM32, not worth the visit. Dusty displays look aged. Took me about 15 minutes to see the whole museum which is quite small

Loved the whole experience. It was such an eye opener to see and learn something new on all things teddy bear related. It was a good cultural experience as well. Gave us an insight of Malay, Chinese and Indian cultures. I would have loved it more if there was a teddy bear workshop or something where we can make our own teddy's haha. Besides that was a good experience.

I was bored outta my mind here so as you can guess I’m not here for me! Kids seem to enjoy it a lot though. Entry for a family of 3 was about $30sgd so wasn’t cheap. I felt that the museum was abit old and the bears on display looked a bit dusty.

We Absolutely Loved This Museum! We weren't expecting it to be so adorable. We thought the teddy bears were so cute, well displayed, and so much fun to look at. We really appreciated all the care that went into making each bear so unique. We enjoyed learning about the culture and history of Malaysia and learned so much about how Penang became what it is today. We smiled everytime we entered into a new room and could not believe how creative and vibrant each section was laid out for us to see. We will definitely be going back for a visit and we'll be smiling the whole time.

This museum surprised me. I expected a typical museum with the history of variety of toys. However, it demonstrates the culture and history of Penang in such a creative and lovely manner, so I read every piece of information on the walls.

For teddy fan you should give a try visiting this museum. You will get a knowledge of the teddy story. There's a lot of pictures can be taken. It's located in the Doubletree by Hilton hotel. At the end of tour you may ask the staff to take a picture of you and family. Also there's a discount given if you buy the merchandise here.

A hidden gem of a museum tucked inside the DoubleTree Resort. While it does have a one-room gallery about the history of teddy bears, its main feature is recreating historical and cultural scenes of Penang through miniature and larger-than-life-sized displays and models. I felt like I got a whole overview of Penang just by looking at the exhibits, such as the British colonization, hawkers' markets, and Kek Lok Si temple. Even my 60 year-old aunt, who grew up and lived in George Town her whole life, didn't know about this place and left quite impressed! Definitely an attraction that would delight children, but would also be of interest to anyone interested in a unique take on the history & culture of Penang.

Apart from the first 'room', this isn't a teddy bear museum. Rather, each room has something about the history or culture of Penang and Malaysia, with life-size + teddy bears dressed to represent the information.

Kids (little kids) may enjoy the teddy bear representatives, teens would be bored senseless, and we only went through because we had free entry tickets.
