Mint Toy Museum

MINT (Moment of Imagination and Nostalgia with Toys) Museum of Toys has more than 50,000 pieces of vintage toys and memorabilia from more than 40 countries. There are old figures, robots, cars, teddy bears, comics, themed lunch boxes etc! If you have any interest in old toys you will like this place. It’s a great example of the differences in times, comparing what kids used to play with (metalic or wooden, non-moving or wind up figures) to today (plastic animated, automatic, talking, robotic toys, video games etc!).

Young kids will recognize characters like Batman, Astro Boy, Tin Tin and Doctor Who etc, just in much older toy form! Note there are a few examples of quite racist toys and products that simply could be be sold today. The museum takes about 1-2 hours to walk around if you read the information and take pictures.

A short walk from various MRT stations (City Hall, Bugis, Bras Basah). You will see two black-coloured umbrellas with Mint Museum of Toys and Mr Punch Restaurant & Winebar logos at the main entrance.

ArtScience Museum

The ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay hosts major touring exhibitions (like Harry Potter, Art of Brick, Secrets of the Tomb) in a new designer building modelled after a lotus flower. There is a small permanent exhibition but its not really worth seeing, just keep an eye out for current exhibitions. Usually there are two on at one time, and you can pay to see either or both at a discounted price.

Tickets are usually S$12-20 depending but varies on the exhibition(s). Discounts for locals and EP holders.

Bayfront or Promenade MRT station

Daily 10:00 ~ 22:00 (check website for closures)
