The Mint Museum of Toys was actually part of our Uniquely Singapore tour experience last October 2009. The large reason why I blogged about this was because I stumbled upon a travel website with bad reviews about this place. One of the reviewers complained that the lighting was extremely poor.
Pardon my french, but whut-duh.fish, didn’t they realize that building was really designed with a low-light environment to preserve the toys from UV-rays? Which is why camera flash is not allowed. It was just bit disappointing.
Moving forward, Mint Museum of Toys is one of the must see attractions in Singapore. I suggest that you visit this place the day before you leave Singapore as it definitely will give you a strong nostalgic feeling of childhood on your travel back home.
Like other museums, pay the admission fee first before beginning the tour. Upon seeing the huge mural painting at the counter, it already gave me a nostalgic feeling of childhood. Browse my photos and take a sneak peak of what’s inside.
