    Mint Museum of Toys is purely for people with an eye for toys. I spent around 1 hour deeply observing the toys and losing myself in them. S$ 15 for an attraction that is less than 1 hour might seem like a bad choice for many people. But, if you have any childhood memories with toys, I urge you to visit this Museum.

    It was good

    My partner and I both loved this collection, especially the level deticated to the space nerds!! A whole level of star wars, robots etc – we spent way too long here! I do think it is more for adults than children as it is mainly nostalgic toys and children may not be able to relate.

    A must go for toy collecters and lovers. The collection of toys were impressive. However, not recommended if you are not interested in vintage toys as it may get a bit boring.

    This museum is for the kids at heart and the geeks. It feeds the soul of those who are into vintage toys and cartoons. It maybe a good place for kids too but you have to watch them all the time and a good time to start educating them with the roots of the cartoon history that they see now.

    I think it is not for everyone. The vintage collection of toys is extensive and after speaking to the owner, I had much more appreciation and respect for the effort he has done to collect these toys. If you go with an open mind, you are going to enjoy it, no doubt. And also a great conversation starter for the couples 🙂

    I only went to this museum cause it was part of the Viator attractions pass. I thought it’ll be interesting so I kept an open mind, but there really isn’t much. I went through the 5 levels in less than 30 minutes. Probably cause I was on a tight schedule as well 🙂
