    If you only have time to visit one Buddhist temple then this is the one you have to see. We were blown away by the beauty and calmed by the atmosphere. We really felt like we left the busy city and had walked into another world away. It was so peaceful.

    This place has great information about the area. Although I've not really ventured a lot as a tourist I found this place very informative and I got to learn something new.

    It was an amazing experience to discover every dimension of the mansion with Mr Ricky and to be guided by him during the tour. He's very knowledgeable and amiable. We have obtained a lot of information regarding the history of Peranakan from him throughout the tour. Despite the pandemic, it didn't affect the quality of the hospitality from the staffs as they are very helpful and welcoming.

    Fun experience! Howeber, experience heavily depends on exhibits. We saw 2x exhibits... one we loved and the other was kind of breezed through because we werent invested. But overall a good way to spend some hours out of the humidity and explore singapore.

    What a wonderful display of antiques and artifacts. Alvin’s passion to preserve and share Peranakan history and culture was remarkable.
    He is a friendly and gracious host.
    Valuable experience.

    The building is situated in a noisy and bustling part of the Little India district in Singapore, but going in, the feel is very different as it is quiet, cool and relaxed.

    Even for a local like myself, the exhibitions on the 3rd and 4th levels of the building about the Indian community in Singapore both past and present are refreshing as they relate the contributions made by this minority community as well as the rich experiences they came with when many of these ones migrated over to Singapore in the 19th and 20th centuries.

    Highly recommended for anyone who wants to enjoy a slow and relaxed way of learning more about the Indian diaspora in this part of the world.

    Although one floor is closed for a new display I still found this a worthwhile stop. To see so many toys in one place is just amazing.
    A bar on the top floor is great for a cold drink.

    It was a very creative museum. The location was very nice with the view straight to the bay. Inside, it was small museum showing new technology of the world, new creations of the world such as the sport suits, phones, smart stuff for the house, headphones, etc... It was very nice to walk around and to be able to touch things in the museum

    A small niche museum, containing some nice musical boxes over the years. The guide (owner) clearly has a passion for this and explained the features and history well. For $12 I think it's worth a visit.

    Only pity was the guided tour was an hour and you can't really roam around after the tour as the next group would be coming in soon. Would be nice if the tour could be extended to 1.5 hours and let us hear more of the boxes because the music was really good.

    There are many turtle or tortoise for you to interact with as a private museum. Got a few active tortoise walking around, but refuse to eat the vegetables we bought from the reception. The tortoise eat the grass on the ground instead, quite disappointed and wasted $2 to buy the vegetables. However, the turtle in the pond love the food. And much more fun and also a lot more that the tortoise. I recommend to buy the turtle food instead of vegetables.
    Beware of the mud during rainy season, as you have to step on the mud to reach to the tortoise.
    Overall experience is good, and also interesting to see a lot of turtle merchandise collection there. Kids love to feed the turtle and tortoise for sure.
