The Penang Toy Museum is said to be the largest and most costliest toy museum in all of Asia and possibly the world. Housed in a large warehouse, if you take your time looking at each piece you could literally spend the whole day there.
Toys maybe children’s best friend, but walking through the front doors is like stepping back into childhood. Young or old, anyone who steps in the toy museum is very likely to be awed and amazed by the huge collection of items there.
Some of these toys are probably worth quite a lot especially since they are out of production. With over 100000 toys in display, there is probably at least a million dollars worth of toys here.
