Mint Museum of Toys

MINT (Moment of Imagination and Nostalgia) Museum of Toys houses a world-class collection of vintage toys and collectable items in an international award-winning contemporary building at 26 Seah Street

 

When it was founded in 2007, the museum was the first in the world known to be purpose-built for toys, and to date remains to be the only one.

Since its inauguration, the museum has expanded its collection, amassing over 50,000 items, 8000 of which are on display in the museum. The toys and items hail from over 40 countries and range in date from the 1840s to 1970s. These are displayed across the rooftop, basement and 4 thematic levels of the museum: Outerspace, Characters, Childhood Favourites and Collectables.

The collection is made up of various key collections, including Batman, Dan Dare, Japanese character and space-related toys, and collectables. In addition to toys, the museum also houses a collection of confectionary vintage tin cans, large-item objects, such as Mobo horses, as well as enamel advertising signs. Over the years, these have been incorporated into various activities and programmes run by the museum, serving as windows into the past as well as inspirations for the present.

Today, MINT Museum of Toys serves diverse and expanding audiences, including families, students, artists, tourists, and a growing audience of collectors.
