Interesting ofcourse! Have never seen most of the toys and yet I'm complaining that I'm getting old. :D But to me, it's a lil on the pricey side.

I took my 4yo to explore this museum. Personally I loved all the old rockets and memorabilia. She loved exploring the museum to grab all the craft supplies to make her own toy.

Just behind Raffles Hotel is this quaint toy museum with lots of toys from the past behind glass cabinets over a few floors. Found it interesting but the lighting was slightly dim. Suitable for all ages. On each floor there is a little hands on activity for kids and big kids to do. You can also buy toys on the... More

Great little museum and very easy to find just across the road from the famous Raffles Hotel, for a privately owned attraction the museum is well stocked with genuine vintage toys from most era's, some quite rare and others especially characters from comic books and cartoon films may be familiar to older visitors, the toys are mostly in glass display...

One of its kind in Singapore. Though the island has many toy retailers here, many of them are selling pretty much the same items. They just do not do toys the same as those of the past. Its refreshing and a trip down memory lane to see the exhibit here with many toys perhaps we might have played with before... More

Amazing range of collection, from the very popular toys to ones that might be unfamiliar to someone that grew up in Asia. The guided tour is a must, I found out so many more things I would never have known about my favourite childhood cartoon, like Popeye! Will definitely come back again for their next season of special exhibition :)

While there are clearly toys from the past, I was not impressed by the way they are displayed. Simple glass cabinets which made it a bit of a chore to get through. Perhaps this museum is more for the real classic toys expert which I am clearly not.

I visited this museum in July 2016. The museum covers five floors-but the exhibition space on each floor is quite small. The admission price of $15 is a bit expensive for the size of the museum. Some nice exhibits, but overpriced in my view.

Came across this place while looking at a map of the city as it was close by our hotel. Intrigued by the name, we looked it up and read that it was a museum of old toys and collectibles. Excited by the prospect of a walk down memory lane, we decided to go there. It can be a bit hard... More
