Old and dusty environment, but still kids loved it

Probably a neglected attraction of Penang. Air Conditioning does not work. But a ton of toys inside. I liked the large life sized toys, while my son was happy just running around... read more

Awful. Disgusting. Dirty. Stuffy. Dusty. A museum without any labels or caption is just a gallery in need of severe upgrading. The crowd has spoken and I would likewise state the same thing. Don't go there. You ain't missing anything for skipping this one. It's a huge waste of time, effort and money. Should have left if we knew that... More

Probably a neglected attraction of Penang. Air Conditioning does not work. But a ton of toys inside. I liked the large life sized toys, while my son was happy just running around and looking at all the hundred of different toy figures. Condition needs to be improved for attracting more visitors.

If you pick up one of the many leaflets advertising the toy museum please beware. The map of the location starts from Batu Ferringhi but it is a long way from that destination. Having found the place we were surprised at the admission price of 29myr when the leaflet states 15 for an adult but that is a special rate... More

I wish I could give them a 0 star! Entrance fees: RM26/adult, RM13/child (3yo and above). What you can get for so much money paid was basically just a whole bunch of toys and figurines displayed in cheap looking racks shielded with plastic/glass. It is like a container inside with almost ZERO interior design, feels like entering a warehouse really.... More

There are a lot of collectables inside here, but the whole experience was meh. It was publicised as 3-in-1 package. We were told we could see wax figures, handbags and something else that I can't remember now. Felt quite cheated, and it was pretty expensive too. The wax figures were just referring to giant size toys, and I didn't remember... More

Not worth the money. The building, entrance and even displays are poor, they make the valuable collection of toys look cheap and worthless. It's like warehouse than a museum. Nothing compared to Mint Toys Museum in Singapore.

the road is secluded, it's a warehouse. they just put the toys in shelves for display. so the visitors only walk along the aisles to see it. most of the toys are figurines and dolls. RM26 adult, RM19 child

Maybe my kids prefer to play rather than see. I personally is the only one who enjoy in the museum. Do think it's bit pricy with kids not enjoying haha.

Poor toy arrangements.. Hot air condition.. Bad toilet... The location is not on the main road... If you stay a georgetown... May be you have to... More
