With over 260 bears on display, learn all about the history of teddy bears, as well as the fascinating story of Mr Simpson and his amazing collection!

The museum is based on the extraordinary group of teddy bears put together over many years by Mr W Simpson, and visitors will find out why he started his collection and explore the history of teddy bears, which goes back as far as 1905. The bears are displayed alongside specially commissioned animated films and there are lots of fun things for children to do, too. Learn about teddy bear history and how to identify any antique bears you may have at home!
