We visited with our 7 year old son and found the whole place rather underwhelming. By Singapore standards the entrance fee is not expensive (S$15 for adults, S$7.50 for children), but even at that price we didn't feel we received value for money. There are exhibits spread across a number of floors, however not very much of interest to our... More

Dear Marc S, Thank you so much for visiting the museum and for taking the time to leave us a review. We're sorry to hear that your experience at the museum was disappointing. MINT Museum of Toys does house a collection of vintage toys and collectables from the 1840s to 1970s, which is a stark comparison to many modern toys... More

Opposite raffles hotel can be found the Mint toy museum which covers 5 floors and has the most amazing selection of old toys in excellent condition. Toilets are very good and there is also a cafe on site. Start at the top floor and work your way down.

Dear Duncan60, Many thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, and we're glad to hear that you enjoyed the collection of toys. Most of our toys are indeed in mint condition, hence the title of the museum, MINT Museum of Toys.

Really something different. 5 floors of a well curated private collection of some truly collectible items. Some reviews will whinge about the low lighting but light damage would destroy such a collection - flash photography more than compensates. A great step back in time and the quality of some of the toys was a reminder of a time when craftspeople... More

This the 3rd time for me to visit this place again. I like it so much because the collection is very well organised, maintained and rare to find anywhere. Only old toys were displayed in there. The place has 5 floors and also has different sections on each level. They displays are also changed every several months, so you will... More

This is a fine place displaying stamps of different countries and different themes. Great surprise to find the theme of Harry Potter and Singaporean history. We are so glad to buy the first day cover of the Open House on Christmas Day!

We have been twice to Mint museum of toys. This time, apart from my older son who had already visited, we took the new baby. The museum is divided in several floors but they are fully accessible by elevator. You'll find old toys and some recent ones. There isn't much information on the exhibit but some items do have an...

Hi NetoLisbon, Super glad to have you return for another visit and to hear that you found "something new". With over 8000 toys on display, one visit, we feel, is simply not enough! We'd definitely recommend going on a guided tour the next time round for there's much more to be shared about the toys on display. Anyway, thank you... More

The mint museum has an extensive collection ranging from teddy bears to large toy carts. The museum environment is an escape from the bustling city of Singapore, I high recommend it
