Picayune, Mississippi: 30,000 Teddy Bears

The Teddy Bear House Museum is arranged like a house, with seven rooms including a bear-themed bathroom and a bear man-cave. Its owners felt that the museum belonged in Mississippi because that's where Teddy Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear cub, inspiring the creation of the Teddy Bear.

Teddy Bear Museum

I absolutely love the Teddy Bear Museum. It was like a step back in time. I had forgotten that Garfield had a teddy bear. I had forgotten about Gummi Glen at Disneyland. I solved the mystery once and for all about the Berenstein Bears. I saw many bears that I never knew existed, such as the bear answering machine and the bear kiss doll collection.

So many bears!

Teddy Bear House Museum.

30,000 Teddy Bears

Estimated to contain over 30,000 pieces in the collection, this place is a bear lover's haven. Don't be fooled by the looks from the outside -- seven bear themed rooms, two party rooms, and an expansive gift shop make up this extensive museum. Tour guide Christian was awesome!
