Located inside a mosque building in the Chinese District this toy museum has some surprising items. Mainly toys for Europe and North America they have come from collectors in the area. There are early Mickey Mouse items

Haha the ticket cost rm15 per entry and the ticket lady say 'Can take picture'.. Its a bit far at Teluk Bahang and its hiding behind a batik gallery. But its... More

Located so far from the other attractions, it is slightly difficult to decide whether you should come so far to see this collection of toys, especially if you're staying in far places like Georgetown. As you can finish viewing the toys in under 1 hour or so, the ticket seems slightly expensive at rm16. The collection displayed here are poorly... More

Basically someone's personal collection of toys stored in a averaged size of storehouse. Some of the collections definitely bring back childhood memories but I find it easily get bored. Can go visit once but that's just it.

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.
