Teddy Bear Art Museum

Welcome to the world's first Teddy Bear Art Museum


Opening Msy 20, 2018. In the heart of Billund, close to Legoland, the museum is located in Edith and Godtfred Kirk Christiansen's villa, the former private home of the LEGO family.

It’s easy to visit us
Fly to Billund Airport or drive to Billund to discover hand-sewn teddy bear collections from all over the world, teddy exhibitions or to make your very own bear. 

Exhibitions 
The Museum’s permanent exhibitions comprise Danish teddy bear collections of hand-sewn teddies, antique and unique teddy bears from all over the world, tableau displays, the VanderBear Family with their unique universe and designer outfits, the history of the teddy bear (the American and the Steiff version) and a private collection of Danish silverware.
 
Alfonzo
Meet the world-famous, historic and valuable teddy bear, Alfonzo, who has found a new home at the Teddy Bear Art Museum in a setting worthy of teddy royalty. Hear the incredible and poignant story of his journey from Russia to England, to high-society on Long Island, back to England (again) to live at Teddy Bears of Witney and who has now arrived at his new home in Billund, Denmark. Alfonzo is a rare, red, Steiff teddy bear from 1908, originally owned by the Russian Princess Xenia whose tumultuous life he shared.
 
The House and Gardens 
The house and beautiful gardens date back to the 1959. The conversion from a secluded family home to a functional museum shows the greatest respect for the house’s original design. The beautiful gardens were laid out by Edith Kirk Christiansen, an avid gardener, and will be open to visitors once the Museum opens.
 
Activities and events
The new Museum will be a hub of creativity. The atrium centre of the house (which is visible from four sides) will be an active workshop where visitors can follow the process of making a teddy bear or see how a new exhibition takes shape. Enroll in one of our courses on how to make your own teddy bear (at advanced and beginner levels). Enjoy fun, teddy-related activities for children. In time, the house will host intimate concerts and other cultural events which we look forward to sharing with you. Follow the history of the teddy bear, solve simple creative projects as you go, enjoy a cup of coffee in the Teddy Bear Café or be inspired to sew your own teddy bear. Discover the history of the teddy bear, solve simple creative tasks as you go, enjoy a cup of coffee in the Teddy Bear Café and be inspired to sew your own teddy bear. There will be lots of teddy bear fun for all at the new Teddy Bear Art Museum.
