As we were around the area and we had guests, we decided to check this place out. Tickets were pricey for such a small place and exhibits which were not museum worthy pieces. Some toys did bring back memories but on the whole, this so called museum can be improved to live up to its name.

Each adult had to pay MYR 30 and a child MYR 15, which are rather exorbitant, considering the "attraction" can be viewed in under an hour. The whole "museum" feels more like the owner displayed all his/her collection of toys as various showcases (cheap plastic and DIY shelves) arranged in no logical nor thematic organization. For such an outback location... More

We were kinda surprised by the ticket price. That feeling faded when we entered as we were greeted by life size versions of our favorite anime/cartoon/movie characters. There were also small figurines and other collectibles. We were ecstatic! Haha. The place was small, though. When we exited, we started looking for the bag museum and ornamental garden (they are supposed... More

My family and I visited the toy museum. It was so much fun. Bought back so many memories growing up. Took lots of amazing pictures. It's not a big museum but it kept the kids entertained for an hour.

First, it didn't seem like a toy museum, more a large display of movie merchandise. The layout and contents seemed a bit repetitive. There were some interesting things in there, and it is quite a big place, but it was also quite expensive to get in. The taxi driver who took us there suggested we go to the butterfly farm... More

Have a variety of toys to see. For us the parents, it was like going down memory lane. For my teenage son was excited to see his gaming heroes and villains in persons.

Not really a museum. If you're a fan of comics and movies action figures geek then its your heaven. Sadly location and management is bad. Whoever owns it needs to consider relocation and pay attention to the maintenance. Other than that can be a fun place. Also a good place to look for reference for artists. We had fun
