We ducked in here to escape the heat as we were meandering around the enclave historic walk. We are glad we did, Ben Jnr was a formidable host. Showing us around and entertaining the kids with some interactive pieces he had on display. It is a lovely collection, obviously much loved and brought back some nice memories for me.
i can say it is the only 1 in asia as they consist of everythings such as small toy to big toys the most fascinated toys i ve ever seen..psss''the cheapest entrance free i can say so..
The owner was really friendly and passionate about his museum and Entrance fee was RM 6 per pax which is really cheap. The first floor had a nice assortment of toys such as pinball machines, bowling toys, an air rifle, an old handheld video game. The owner also showed us some vintage comics. The second floor is filled with cars for small kids. Overall i felt that the museum was really interesting and gave me a nostalgic feeling. My favourite attraction of the trip
