GiZMO BEARS IN THE JEJU KOREAN TEDDY BEAR MUSEUM!!
The beautiful Jeju teddy bear museum in Korea opened its doors in 2001. I was very fortunate to have 5 of my bears selected for display in this beautiful unique architectural design situated on an ocean viewing hill area on a famous resort island.
Its landmark glass cone is as high as a 9 storey building, 27 meters and the museum comprises of 4.000 square meters with 600 square meters of exhibits.
Its 13.000 square meters of land also houses sculpture gardens, a café, and restaurant as well as museum shop.
Nearly 4 million visitors from around the world see over 1000 items on display in the museum…including GiZMO BEARS!!
What a great honor to have my creations on display so far away!
