The Teddy Bear Museum in Gyeongju, Korea uses a novel, innovative approach to introducing historical events of the world.

Instead of displaying realistic human sculptures, the museum uses hundreds of large and small teddy bears to depict events in the history of mankind, (going back as far as the Age of Dinosaurs).

They also represent events in Korea of the Silla Kingdom in several different exhibition halls.

Each exhibit has their own theme and each theme has their own stories. Although the approach is whimsical, the museum tries to be serious in it's replication of the events, architecture, history and scenery.
