Children Little Museum at Kampong Glam

After visiting the Kids Arts Village the other day, Anya and I went to Kampong Glam for a walk. We went into a shop near Sultan Mosque called Children Little Museum. The shop sells all kinds of old toys like marbles, capteh, five stones, etc. We had to pay $2 each to go up to the second floor of the shop which turned out to be a tiny museum of some sort. It’s a really small space but they have managed to cramp quite a lot into it.

There are a few gems in the Children Little Museum even though the items don’t really seem to come from a particular era and it was more like a collection of random old things that we don’t see around us anymore. But I really do like looking at old things.

Afterwards, we cooled down at Fika, a halal Swedish cafe, before checking out Haji Lane.
