It is a 5-storey contemporary building housing a museum, gift shop and Mr. Punch Rooftop Bar, as well as restaurants in the basement. Impressive, no? The exhibits consist of an impressive collection of toys and childhood memorabilia, including stuffed animals, tin cans and some vintage dolls etc - all with very detailed description. There are also events ongoing at the... More

These people have a good website but once you're there, it's a complete turnoff. Very small, nothing interactive for children and quite expensive, especially for what little they have to offer. Don't go there. It's a complete waste of time and money.

We went here as we had tickets included in our iventure card it was a short walk from the mrt. When you arrive you enter through a cafe there are classic toys for sale in the cafe as well. Once you get your tickets you are shown to a lift where you are told to start from the 5th floor... More

Entrance bit confusing, so walk slowly to find the place beside cafe. It is amazing to see all those old toys. Looks as the collection of toys is used/played by kids and now stored in museum. Tys are played in different level shelves which kids may not be able to see all. So dot plan this trip for your kids.... More

We stumbled across this little museum on our first day strolling through the city. (It's pretty hidden!) A lot of the old toys brought back memories for us. I loved the display case of vintage lunch pails! Lots of Star Wars, lots of Batman, lots of Tin Tin. And strangely, and not to my interest, lots of british royal family... More

Way too expensive for SGD15 entrance fee. This is more expensive than the impressive Sg Art Museum and Srtscience Museum. It's small, with a tight narrow walkway on the five floors. The toys are displayed in glass cabinets, with very dim lighting. Some of the lights were even not working. Not worth it, not even suitable for children.

We had to travel out of our way to reach this secluded and difficult to find place in a small street. We went there with my 7 year old son thinking he would enjoy the place. Even he found the place a waste of time and money. We were out of the place within 5 minutes flat. Don't bother even... More

For a $15 entry fee I suppose I expected a bit more. While the exhibition was set out cleverly for the skinny building it is placed in (opposite the Raffles complex and below a bar), and the toy collectors rationale for collecting indie toys from an era before mass production of plastic toys in recent years made a lot of...

Looking at a bunch of old toys. Yup, that's what is going to sum up ur trip there, and unless you are some sort of toy collector or someone who's just very into toys (especially antique ones), u aren't going to really have a good time. Well, not all the time, sometimes u might see a toy and get up... More

Mint museum of toys - what a wonderful trip down memory lane of toys. Wish I had my parents and grandparents here so they could tell me what they had played with. It would be great if they had more explanation of the toys background as some were lost as to what they did and were too old for us... More
