Give this place a try. Very interesting. Oldies and the kids were both fascinated. It isn't cheap but that is understandable given the quality of the collection. Maybe more for locals than tourists. I wouldn't fly to Singapore to see this.

Every time we visit Singapore we visit this museum . A bit disappointed this time as one floor was closed. It was the floor I love ---collectibles. However because floor was closed price to get in was discounted. Still enjoyable.

Too many collection, too little space. The museum is a 5-story shophouse, so it's narrow and I imagine will be suffocating if there were many visitors. The collections are diverse and abundant but they were all crammed in glass cupboards, without sufficient lighting, information and interaction.

Spread over 4, or was it 5, floors the collection is arranged by a number of logical themes. It brought back many happy childhood memories and by way of its wide geographic scope, showed what kids in many other countries were playing with, reading, listening to or building, through the decades. Brilliant! And the entry cost is very reasonable.

The building that houses Mint Museum of Toys is beautiful and entirely suited to its purpose. It takes up five floors, but has a small footprint. It is fresh and modern. Once you start your tour you realise that the collection is massive and diverse. There are a lot of toys from Japan and toys that cover that cover every... More

A pleasant tiny museum down at seah Street, possibly a missed if not looked hard enough. We went there during the off hour, overall is a short but pleasant visit. Staff is friendly and polite. The museum consist of 5 floors. The first floor is where you get the tickets and some souvenirs. They have a nice variety of retro... More

This museum was enjoyed but I wouldn't have spent the money if it didn't come as an inclusion on our explorer pass. It is probably more enjoyable for adults who were kids in the 50's & 60's as many toys were from that era but we all liked our visit. My kids 4&6 & both of us in our 40's... More

Have been hearing about this for a bit, and since we were booked a couple of blocks away my daughter and I decided to visit. Overall the museum is small, dark, and lacks any real variety. Although it boasts a fairly respectable collection of tin toys from before the days of plastic, it doesn't go much more beyond that. Sure... More

I love toys, so could not resist visiting this museum. Its a narrow, 5 storied building, and you could easily walk by and miss it. There are plenty of toys and collectibles, some extremely rare. Each floor has a different theme, and you could easily search out toys from your childhood. Kids would not enjoy it so much, guess its... More

This is a short walk from Suntec and is surrounded by restaurants bars and also Raffles Hotel. I went on a Friday afternoon and paid $15. There is a rooftop bar that does food but it's only open at night. I find it very interesting. I would say this is most suited for adults only.
