Delve into the city's lesser-visited third spaces to uncover kooky warrens of oddball knowledge.
For those feeling nostalgic for their childhood, a visit to the MINT (Moment of Imagination and Nostalgia with Toys) Museum of Toys will help you relive some of your most cherished memories.
This private museum boasts more than 50,000 pieces of vintage toys, some of them over 100 years old, and childhood memorabilia from more than 40 countries, some as far away as Bulgaria.
Believed to be the largest collection of its kind in Southeast Asia, the vast range of collectibles – from Batman and Astro Boy to vintage comics and teddy bears – will delight both adults and their children. The impressive collection belongs to Singaporean Chang Yang Fa.
The vintage toys on display are more than just nostalgic playthings, but also tell the story of the era in which they were created.
Visitors who want a souvenir of this quirky exhibition can pick up a Space Walk Man robot or an “Ultraman Japan 1990's” figurine from the museum shop. Also housed in the contemporary five-storey award-winning building is a 1920s-inspired restaurant in the basement and a rooftop bar that offers views of iconic buildings like the Raffles Hotel and the National Library.
