I was in the area during my short venture around Kampong Glam and saw this place. I won't say that I'm old enough to actually experience all the classic games and toys of Singapore, but the signage outside drew me in. Initially, the owner invited to us to take a look at the main gallery upstairs for S$2. It was... More

I was there with a couple of friends checking out some of the nostalgic games on display and I was seriously considering purchasing some of the toys on display outside. The owner, I have to say, is really two-faced. He would offer to take photos for tourists who were outside the shop (but not checking out the store), in hopes... More

While exploring Kampong Glam on our Singapore holiday, my wife and I wandered into this place on Friday 6th November 2015. The owner promptly collected $2 from each of us, gave us each a ticket and directed us upstairs to the museum. We asked him if it was okay for us to take photographs of the exhibits and he replied...

I'm in my 40s, so I can relate to this place because it features a collection of toys that date back in the 60s-70s, and it brought back many memories of what one's childhood in Singapore used to be like. I must acknowledge that the collection here is not an exhaustive one, but for the very low admission fee ($2?),... More

This place located just opposite Sultan Mosque. So if you come to Arab street and you are interested in old toys and other nostalgic things, you can visit this small museum. The entrance ticket price was a small fee (can not remember exactly how much, between SGD3-4 I guess). Many dioramas, toys and stuff from the past (asian life) you... More

We were walking in the area and popped in. Nothing we had not seen before, lots of cute toys and ohhh and arrrrs about items one grew up with. The person running the place on the day was more concerned about people taking photos alongside the memorabilia, perhaps they need a sign up.

This very small museum seems out of place in the must visit Kapong Glam part of the city. It is a just drop by and check it out kind of place and will take about 30mins to view There are two floors. It is free to enter on the ground, look around, buy. It has a large robot at the... More

Nice young guy running the place. Nostalgia plus! Worth a pop in. Loved everything Small but worth a visit if you are in the Arab quarter.

So happy to see toys I had again, still treasure some of them. Great photo studio at the back of the museum. I am not photogenic but the friendly owner insisted i pose and shoot pictures with my phone for me free of charge. Sent him a postcard after the trip :)

We made an attempt to get in here on a Sunday morning but were unfortunately thwarted by some filming that was taking place on the premises. So all we got to see was the tin man near the entrance. Will have to come back again at some stage in the future.

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighbourhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly coloured fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Centre and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
