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.

    Mint (Moment of Imagination and Nostalgia with Toys) Museum of Toys @ 26 Seah Street is the world's first purpose-built museum for toys. Showcasing an extensive collection of vintage toys, including rare and unique one-of-a-kind toys, that spans more than 25 countries over 100 years.

    Although I had heard and read of this place but can't didn't find time to visit it, maybe also due to the ticket price. Since I was invited for the Yebber party thus I went ahead to attend the party, visit the museum for FREE!

    I have a quick tour of the museum because the party had yet started. I paid a visit to level 2 - 4 to check out the many antique and retro toys which includes Popeye, Batman & Robin, Ultraman, Mickey Mouse, Felix the Cat, Tintin, Flinestone, Snoopy, Inspector Gadget, Dennis, Beatles, Darkies, Matchbox car collectibles and other kampung toys!

    Bring back many fond memories!

      On Friday, it was an honour to be invited to Yebber’s 1st anniversary event. The event was held in Mint (Moment of Imagination and Nostalgia with Toys) – Museum of Toys, across from Raffles Hotel. Showcasing an extensive collection of vintage toys from all over the world, it is regarded as one of the finest in the world and the largest in Southeast Asia. At the basement was Mint Café – Asia’s very first toy-themed café.

      I arrived early and did a quick tour of the place before the event started at the 3rd Level and was greeted with toys and characters that I was familiar with – from Popeye to Ultraman, to retro Matchbox car collectibles, Kampung toys and even the Beatles.

      All the guests were later treated to a sumptuous buffet dinner consisting of Parmesan Crusted Chicken, Seafood Platter (Calamari, Dory Fillet, & Scallops), Bruschetta (Wild Mushrooms, Tomato Checca & Salmon Cream), and Linguini with Crab Sauce.

      Personally, I thought the Wild Mushroom Bruschetta was the best – the toast was crispy and the mushrooms were flavoursome. I bet the salmon cream ones were just as great but unfortunately, I didn’t managed to lay my hands on them before they were cleared out. Oh, the desserts were pretty lovely as well, especially the Strawberry Panna Cotta - the sourish berries was a delightful complement to the sweet pudding.

        The only reason why I visited a museum was because I had to do a school assignment on a museum in Singapore. Little did I know prior to coming is that it is a toy museum. I thought it was that Singapore Mint that produced notes and coins. Anyway, it turned out I enjoyed my trip very much.

        Located in a cozy corner behind The Raffles Hotel, the museum is opened in 2006 by an avid toy collector. The place displays collection of toys from all over the globe. It is the first purpose built museum for toys in the world.

        A visit to the place evokes childhood memories. Visitors could relate the toys to the time when they were playing them as a child, the moment of finding a familiar toy and character that was once played. It is truly something unique, providing a change from the norm of visiting the museum deemed as “boring, old and dingy” by visitors.

        It is very much advisable to walk around with the help of a guide. I am pleased to have the guidance of Erwin, who was pretty well-equipped with the toy knowledge. He was busy guiding a group of kids when we arrived, but I was very pleased when he came over and offered to bring us on a tour around. Without a guide, you would not know more about additional trivia and facts of the various toys.

        The Mint Café, located in the basement offers a relaxed, yet sophisticated ambience for casual or formal dining. A comprehensive menu, based on an international cuisine, is available to suit all palates. It is a special experience to dine alongside the toy memorabilia.

        All in all, this museum is not like any other museum. This attraction is not just for tourist. It is a place where locals can visit for a very unique experience, maybe a place for that lovely date perhaps? Be amazed and be awed by the displayed collection, which in fact, only comprises 10% of the owner’s collection. I really admire his dedication to toys!
