- ADL's Rating
Without toys, the line of difference between Childhood and Adulthood would probably vanish. Unfortunately, in this modern era of ours, with the iPhone, iPad, and computer games, children nowadays are seldom into toys anymore. Ever wanted to reminisce the good old days by looking through all the toys that you’ve played?! Be sure to check out this deal that we are reviewing today!

The Mint Museum of Toys is actually the world’s first purpose-built museum for toys. It is located at Seah Street and was officially opened in 2007. Today’s deal allows one to purchase 2 adult admission ticket to the museum at only $14! Is this a good deal?! Lets start our analysis…
ADL did our research and found out the original prices of the admission ticket to the museum. They are as shown in the table below.
Note: the above information is as per taken from the museum’s website, and from what ADL found out from calling the museum
The original price of an adult ticket alone is already $15. Whereas for this deal, at only $14, it allows one to purchase two adult tickets! A total savings of $16 (comparing $14 to $30, the original price of 2 adult tickets)!
WHAT ADL SAYS:
With regards to the price aspect of this deal, it should be very clear from above that there is definitely savings involved for this deal Now lets move on to talk about the other aspect of this deal.
Firstly, the location of the museum is pretty accessible. It is located at 26 Seah Street, Singapore 188382, next to the Raffles Hotel and Bras Brash Complex. The nearest two MRT stations are City Hall and Bugis. A 10 to 15 minutes walk from the MRT station is needed to reach the museum itself.
Next, we will move on to talk about the validity of this deal. As seen from the terms and conditions for this deal, the redemption period for this deal is from 10 January to 29 February 2012. Thats about slightly more than 1 months, which is rather little. Whats more, this period of time is not the school holidays. Thus, if you are thinking of purchasing this deal to have a family outing to the museum, do take note. Nonetheless, the weekend is always another option since redemption is valid daily except on 23th Jan 2011 and 24th Jan 2011 which is the Chinese New Year period.
Lastly, another additional perk about this deal is that it encompasses of a 20% discount at Mr Punch Restaurant & winebar. This restaurant is the museum’s in-house restaurant, and it serves western cuisine. Perfect for a meal after spending time at the museum itself. ADL called up the restaurant and found out that currently there is a DBS cards promotion which entails one to 15% off ala carte dishes. NTUC card son the other hand allows one to enjoy 20% off ala carte dishes.
