Singapore Musical Box Museum Reviews
You get an individual tour and learn the history of music boxes. They play many old, old ones! They even have one that is 270 years old. Delightful guide. more »
Was walking along telok ayer street and dropped by for lunch. Incidentally this niche museum is just next to where we were, and the peranakan tiles gallery more »
This place is amazing! Although a small museum, the tour and explanation given as well as seeing all the mechanics inside the musical boxes... just awesome! My family would be interested in workshops related to making of cylinder music boxes and even an observation opportunity to watch a craftsman repair the musical boxes. Thank you for this wonderful museum and the opportunity to learn more about musical boxes.
This is a hidden gem in Singapore. The guide was absolutely wonderful and took his time to tell us the history of the items in the museum. I never thought that there could be such interesting facts on just musical boxes and clockworks. Definitely worth a visit.
