I am attracted to off-beat kinds of museums. How could I not resist a toy museum? I almost choked when I learned the entrance fee was S$15 (that's S$10 more than the Art Museum, and this place is a lot smaller). Nevertheless, I went forward because it was still irresistible and they were playing fun background music . The exhibit... More

So glad I visited this place on our recent holiday. Entry price is very reasonable and with a Singapore Airlines boarding pass there is a 25% discount. Vast display of toys over 5 levels which you can explore at your own pace with no pressure or staff following you. Some very rare pieces from around the world. Great place to... More

Entering this museum really bringback your childhood memories. You can see a lot of toys from the old times until the new toys. You can see your childhood teddy bear, which, maybe you already throw it away. You can find the exact same teddy bear like u used to have here, ther is also batman, tin tin, astroboy, etc. Don'...

Learnt about the history of toys and reminded of childhood memories. The lighting is not very good for photo-taking but got to understand that light can affect the condition of the old toys.

Particularly liked the batman items on display, and not much else. Their anime floor is kinda lacking too. A little costly for something not that well stocked, but nevertheless you can enjoy it and as a collector, I have. People can be a nuisance and taking photos could be a pain, but if you love to look and appreciate, not... More

What a disappointment this place can be even when you go with children . It is complete waste . A small building stacked with any child's toy collection . You will surely waste your time here and the money too . There is so much better to do in Singapore

The museum may be small in size but it does pack 50,000 pieces of vintage toys spreading over 4 levels namely collectables, childhood favorite, characters n outer space. Before I entered the museum, I thought I would be bored by the boring museum display but was I wrong. I was fascinated by the array of toys that brought back all... More

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
