Penang Toy Museum

Tanjung Bungah Attractions

Penang Toy Museum bills itself as the world’s largest toy museum. It is home to over 100,000 dolls, trains and other collectibles and has earned a spot in the Malaysian Book of Records as the country’s first toy museum, with the largest toy and figurine collection.

Walking through the front doors is like stepping back into childhood and you are sure to see some old friends in the collection, from My Little Ponies and Care Bears to Doraemon and Gundam collectibles. A kitschy yet fun place to visit, it is a worthwhile and entertaining place to visit for both adults and kids.

Design of Penang Toy Museum

The Penang Toy Museum’s façade is embellished with pseudo Egyptian-style hieroglyphics and watercolor prints of the sphinx and pyramids of Giza. Located in Jalan Tanjung Bungah (opposite Copthorne Orchid Hotel), the museum is divided into several sections: The Chamber of Horrors (designed for adults), Chamber of Monsters, Chamber of Fantasy, Chamber of Comic Book Heroes, Cave of Dinosaurs, Fields of Combat, Hall of Virtual Reality, Hall of Rock Legends, Hall of Celebrities, Hall of Cartoons, Hall of Beauties (for Barbie lovers) and Star Wars Collections.

Each area has been outfitted with special effects from chilling voiceovers and weird sounds triggered by motion sensors at the Chamber of Horrors to motion effects in the Star Wars Collections hall.

The 6996sqft Penang Toy Museum was started by Loh Lean Cheng, who was inspired after visiting the London Toy and Model Museum. He began his collection with a Popeye doll, bought in 1973, and from then on the compilation grew.

The most expensive toy at the complex is a RM9000 Gundam robot from Japan: the 1.8m-tall robot is a rare, limited edition toy Cheng acquired on a trip. The museum receives more than 100 visitors a day.
