I always walk past the MINT Museum road sign from Bugis to City Hall but I never had the chance to walk in. I always liked museums because they hold so much knowledge, history and nostalgia in them. In all honesty, I wasn’t much interested in toys until much later when I was enchanted by a friend’s fascination with toys. While I wouldn’t spend the money to collect them, I like to look.
Photos too good to be mine, they’re by Roger again. Check him out for photo shoots.
Betcha didn’t know that MINT stood for something. Here’s a tidbit from their website, “MINT (Moment of Imagination and Nostalgia with Toys) Museum of Toys is the world’s first purpose-built museum for toys.” And woah, the museum is privately owned by a toy collector. It’s so amazing how much toys he accumulated such that he can open his own museum.
Okay, on the other hand, have you seen my Enid Blyton collection? I really ought to take a picture of them soon. My Momster says I’ll have to shift them to my matrimonial home next time.
Okay, back to the topic.
