Why Mint museum of toys is special ?

It was officially launched by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr George Yeo, on 5 March 2007.


Belonging to Mr Chang Yang Fa, a Singapore Citizen, the private museum showcases an extensive collection of vintage toys, including rare and unique one-of-a-kind pieces. It is considered to be the largest collection of its kind within Southeast Asia, with more than 50,000 pieces of vintage toys and childhood memorabilia from more than 40 countries, including Singapore, Germany, Japan, United Kingdom, the United States, and even Bulgaria. The collection ranges from the mid-19th Century to the mid-20th Century.

What to explore at Mint museum of toys?

One of the objectives of the museum is to reach out to the child in every one of us, giving visitors an emotional link to their childhood, one which has often been long forgotten. In addition, a visit to the museum is also a journey of discovery. More than mere playthings, the vintage toys on display reflect interesting international cultural trends and historically accurate events that have taken place over the centuries. Each of them tells a different story that represents the era in which they were made in.

“Kids may not enjoy. I did enjoy.” Entrance bit confusing, so walk slowly to find the place beside cafe. It is amazing to see all those old toys. Looks as the collection of toys is used/played by kids and now stored in museum. Tys are played in different level shelves which kids may not be able to see all. So dot plan this trip for your kids. I perosnally enjoyed watching all those olden day toys. They all are made of steel sheets. Not plastic. Many of them mechanical toys with springs or some kind of mechnaical mechanisms. At the end my daughter was screaming that she is bored and i had to finish watching toys fast.
