Embark on a journey of re-discovery and nostalgia at the MINT Museum of Toys! You need not be an avid toy collector to appreciate and enjoy this world-class display of vintage toys and childhood memorabilia from 25 countries, right here in Singapore! Dating all the way back to the mid-19th-century, expect to be amazed and fascinated by this home-grown treasure trove which was amassed over 30 years by the museum?s founder. Betty Boop, Batman, Astroboy, Mickey Mouse, Flash Gordon, Green Hornet, The Beatles, Golliwogs, Ultraman, Matchbox Cars, Star Wars ? and the list goes on!

Sum up your visit at MINT with a hearty meal at MINT Café, a boutique designer café at the basement of the building. Conveniently located in the heart of the city at 26 Seah Street (beside Raffles Hotel) yet away from the hustle and bustle of the urban crowd, MINT is ideal for birthday celebrations, family dinners and even corporate functions!

Let MINT bring out the child in you as you enjoy a Moment of Imagination and Nostalgia with Toys.

Museum Admission Fees Adult: SGD $15.00 Child: SGD $7.50 (2 to 12 yrs) Senior Citizen: SGD $7.50 (60 yrs and above)

    My neighbour, the Chiew family, brought their kids and us “the big kids” to this place without even a hint of where we were heading to till we reached the doorstep of the Museum.

    Seriously, I never thought I would step foot into a toy museum. Toys! Aren’t they for kids? Adults, hmmm…well, you never know till you got there.

    There are 5 storeys of toys collection from many different countries. I would suggest you start viewing from the top and slowly make your way down. There, you will find all kinds of vintage toys on display, stored in glass cabinets with the years made and the estimate value it is today. Astro Boy, Tin Tin, Popeye, Batman, Ultraman, Betty Boop, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and so many more are waiting to be discovered by you. I bet the parents will be boasting to their kids on all the kind of toys they used to play back in their good old childhood days.

    You will be shocked by how much those toys are worth today! Can you imagine what was going through my mind when I saw that? How I wish I have kept the toys when I was little. But then, our parents would be chiding us for having one toy too many. Aha…how wrong they were if they happened to visit this place and I reckoned they will beat their chest in disbelieved!

    Now kids, this is a good excuse for you to ask for more toys! And, parents please don’t get mad as this may turn out to be a worthwhile investment, not just in terms of monetary wise but is also a great way to build a strong bond between you and your precious child.

    Thanks to SeeDifferent.SG, we were invited to a private Halloween Party at MINT Museum of Toys. Our visit to the MINT Museum of Toys was a perfect complement to our earlier visit to the Singapore Toys, Games and Comic Convention (STGCC). From these visits, we were able to see toys of different periods (vintage toys in MINT Museum of Toys versus modern ones in STGCC) from all around the world.

    The “MINT” in MINT Museum of Toys stands for Moment of Imagination and Nostalgia with Toys. The museum is the world’s first purpose-built museum for toys. Its unique collection of vintage toys originates from over 25 countries such as Germany, Japan, United States and even Bulgaria.

    Over 50,000 pieces of vintage toys and childhood memorabilia dating from the mid-19th century to mid-20th century, is exhibited over 4 levels of the museum e.g. The toys at Level 5: Outerspace, reflect early 20th century society’s perception of technology and space travel in the future – deadly ray guns, flying suits, scary robots and aliens.

      MINT Museum of Toys is located beside Chjimes. My friend and I decided to go there on the day after Youth Day as we wanted to go somewhere interesting and different. We alighted at Cityhall MRT and walked a short distance to the museum.

      We had a discount for the tix as we were students. So $7.50 per student. It's the same price as the ticket for child! So cheap! :D

      Inside the museum, we were fascinated by the amount of toys inside! Plus it's all old toys, meaning they're somewhat a kind of antique? Expensive, the toys.

      There were 5 levels (including 1st level) open for visitors. Space characters, collectibles, childhood favorites, and characters.

      We cam-whored a lot on the 4th level as there was not much people and a comfortable sofa for you to rest on. It was like being at home!

      Basically, it was fun and interesting. So, head down to the MINT Museum of Toys now!
