Teddy Bear House Museum, Picayune – Mississippi Mondays February 17, 2020

I chose the Teddy Bear House Museum, Picayunehttp://mississippimuseums.org/teddy-bear-house-museum/ as this week’s Mississippi Mondays post. Seems WordPress ate my saved copy of this post so restarting it from scratch. In some reviews, it appears the museum was originally in New Orleans. Reports of it being closed are premature or apply to the earlier location. They posted to the museum‘s Facebook page recently. There are other Teddy Bear Museums from my research.
