Well, yes, its slightly difficult to locate the location. We went in March 2013. I do agree with other reviewers that the set up is not exactly as exotic as other museums (dont imagine it to be like the museum you saw in the movie "night at the museum"), but hey..we should applause the collectors effort in sharing his toys...

It's complete waste of time. Even my 6 year-old daughter was disappointed. Everything looks cheap and nasty. The Malaysian tourism authority should close this place.

It was frustrating searching for the museum. We went to the old address at Jalan Tanjung Bungah and was told they had moved to Jalan Teluk Bahang. The new place was off the main road and the sign they put up by the road was not visible. The place was like a cheap warehouse which they called a museum. Toys... More

First, this museum was located at a very remote area, which may cause the foreigners feels difficult to find this place. The museum's outlook was just ordinary, which you may think it is more likely a store rather than a museum. The entrance fees was high, RM30 for foreigners and RM15 for locals, what you can see upon entering the... More

Never expect a museum is like this, going in will see two rows of glass display cabinet, so, while you looking at left hand side, u got to miss the other side, unless, u keep on turning ur head left n right. The ventilation is poor, very stuffy, hot, and no proper cleaning done, dusty everywhere, one family like us,... More

My wife wanted to visit the museum after being told how exciting it was for the child of her friend, when they visited the museum a couple of months back. Getting there was tricky as the road leading to the museum was a bit hidden from the main road. Yup, a road sign was up. Not to worry. Make sure... More

Our little four year old loved this place. We stayed for over an hour he just loved the life size Spider-Man and batman. When writing a review I think about all members of our family and even though an hour was a long time for me to look at toys the smile and squeals from our four year and three... More

Is located a bit off from the main road, you really have to find it.. But is worth every penny of the entry fees that you pay.. Real life size statues of super heroes, villains and other characters from Disney and Hollywood..! Had awesome time posing with them and clicking pictures..! Worth visiting once..!
