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

$15 SGD (currently about $12 USD) is on the expensive side for a museum, but there's millions of dollars worth of toys inside. Organized into themes, you'll start at the top floor and head down the stairs or elevator. It's a unique collection of toys around the world, almost all of which are at least 40 years old. Some date... More

If you're interested in the history of toys, this is a must see! Five floors of OLD toys... many the only remaining toy of it's kind still existing! Some of the stories of toy makers were also very inspiring! There some good discount vouchers available at various hotels too... worth using one on the entrance fee!
