MINT (Museum of Toys)

Alighted at City Hall MRT Station, followed Google Maps and reached MINT after about 10 min walk.

Ticket can be bought at level 1 (Adult: SGD16.05, inclusive of 7% GST). You’ll be given a Museum Guide and recommended to start from level 5.

In the lift.

MINT, which means perfect, as if new, curated 8500 toys for display since it’s opening in 2007. The entire museum is dim as light causes the colours of toys to fade. This actually made the museum feels pretty dingy, especially when I visited during the non-peak hours of a weekday. The eyes and sizes of toys looked enlarged haha.

Reason for the dim lighting.
