  • The place consist of 4 storey building.. Each has their unique toys, some of the floor lights are not turn on.. So it was a bit dark inside and could not enjoy the toys... Ticket price is somehow expensives.
  • This was a very cool interesting museum with lots of toys from different parts of the world. We had fun here. I went here with Dad, my bother Howie and my nephew Alon when we went to visit Dad in Singapore in summer of 2008. Dad was living in Singapore at the time. He had just retired as Secretary-General of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, and was now head of the ASEAN Studies Center at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies...
  • Intresting place for you to see toys from your childhood. This place is attractive for adults and will not that interesting for young childrens.
  • My husband is a toy aficionado and he had an awesome time, probably more for older kids than younger ones 😊
  • Beautiful and fun museum dripping with nostalgia (ignore the rather cheap gift shop outside). So many memories and enough information to keep you interested. Make sure you visit the quirky Mr Punch bar/restaurant downstairs for a drink/snack afterwards... more vintage delights down there. Oh, and lovely staff.
