“found this by accident”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We found this by accident in one of our wanders was the best part of trip for me to see so many toys from my childhood you could just wonder around as long as you liked toys are in glass cabinets so needed to watch flash when taking photos but loved all the interesting stuff

“toys smagosboard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

if you're into toys and collectibles, this is the spot to be. Filled with collectibles from all sort of toys, comic genres, every adult will find its inner kids. The large selection in the small store is pretty interesting. lots of photo opps.

“Mint Museum of Toys”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This was on my bucket list last year when I visited. I have been unable to post pictures of my last few reviews. This was the work of one man, and has surely the best collection of Tin Plate, plus loads more cool stuff including the suoerhero of the 50's DAN DARE.

Next door to RAFFLES.... please visit this, you will not be disappointed

Dear Ernest C,

We're chuffed to hear that MINT Museum of Toys was on your bucket list and that you managed to cross that off your list (yay!).

Thank you for the wonderful view and the recommendation. We're glad to hear you had a wonderful time appreciating the collection on display.

The current exhibits make up only 10% of the collection and we're hoping to share more with visitors. Do look out for our quarterly exhibition as well as monthly featured exhibits to view and learn more about the vintage toys within our collection. Follow our facebook page @mintmuseumoftoys or subscribe to our mailing list to receive updates!

Thank you again and we hope to see you again very soon. Until then, have a great week ahead!

“Place not to be missed if you love collectables, vintage old school Toys”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2017

Great place for collectors of Toys, not much interactive for kids, but its a great eye opener regards to the type of toys that kids played with those days, lots of history to learn from these toys, you will be surprised. Its a must see if you are in town and have at least an hour to spare.

Dear RonChristian,

Thank you for visiting the museum and for taking the time to leave us a review. We're glad you found your visit fruitful.

With over 8000 toys on display ranging from 1840's to 1970's, there is certainly a lot to take home, from the type of toys played with in the past to the history behind them. We hope you managed to find some of our rare and one-of-a-kind toys like the Mickey Mouse Hurdy Gurdy and the Alice Doll.

Of course, we also hope you left with a tin toy souvenir of your own from MINT Shop to add to your collection.

You're always most welcome to visit again. We hope to see you soon and until then, here's wishing you a great week ahead.

“History through Toys”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2017 via mobile

Having the opportunity to visit The MINT Museum of Toys was actually surprisingly fun and eye-opening. It is fun exploring history through toys. Even after spending 2 hours there, I'm confident we didn't get to see everything but we certainly had a great time nonetheless. It could be slightly improved if there was an enthusiastic guide to bring us around or some kind of audio tour to fully appreciate some of the toys. A word for parents: You might think "toys" means "children" but I don't think young children would enjoy the place as everything is valuable locked up in display cases or  comes with "a restraining order". It is still a museum afterall.

Dear undersgsun,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We're glad to hear you had a fantastic time at the museum!

There certainly is a lot to see here, with over 8,000 toys on display, one visit is simply not enough. We do have to agree though that the experience can be made more enjoyable, if not more educational, with a guide. We do offer complimentary tours every Wednesday at 3:30pm and on other days, visitors can opt to include a guided tour with their visit.

Do come down for one of our late-night exhibitions, Guerrilla, which takes place on every last Saturday of the month for a chance to view more exhibits and take part in some activities. We do hope to see you again and until then, have a lovely week ahead.
