Tucked away behind a very busy street around Bugis Area, we spotted a little but nice museum called Children Little Museum. It took quite sometime for us to really find this quaint museum, since we’re not familiar with the area and it’s really hidden among the little shop of Bussorah Street.
Location: 42 Bussorah Street (in front of Sultan Mosque)
Opening Hours: 10.30am – 10.00 daily
How to get here?
From Bugis MRT, walk straight (in opposite direction of Bugis Junction), turn right at Arab Street. Walk straight again until you see Sultan Mosque (this is actually the back side of the mosque). Cross the street. Walk straight again until you see the sign Muscat Street in front of you. Don’t go straight again, but turn left until you see the front side of Sultan Mosque. In front of the Mosque, turn right, and you will see the museum is the second shop on the left.
For details, please see Singapore Map, since we found this place by carefully looking at the map (I learnt how to read maps in Singapore, and now I can say I’m quite good at doing it……).
This is a very small museum. All the things here are very old (maybe as a reminder of our childhood memories?). Although lil bot has very little connections with all the things here, he still had fun playing with all the things from big to small. He even wondered about some old toys and how to use them, but somehow he managed to use his imagination and did his own play.
There are two floors in this museum, the first one is used as a small souvenir shop and small display of old stuffs. There is a little backyard in this floor, and we found some interesting old stuffs too here. Since it wasn’t very crowded that day, we played all by ourselves that day. Maybe this place has never been too crowded after all, doesn’t mean that nobody comes here, people just come and go but not at the same time. There were some people before us, and some people after us….
We opened the wooden door to go to the second floor, and were surprised to see how the owner can put so many things in this very narrow space. He hangs so many big stuffs on the roof. Well, as I can say….the owner is fully utilized every corner and space with his antique collection that brings you back to the 60’s or 70’s area…..I would say some of the things came from 80’s too, since me and daddy remember some of the old stuffs that we had once when we were kids. Those old days, when we didn’t stick ourselves in front of the TV for hours, and knew nothing about the computer games and other gadgets, when we played outside the house most of the time with our friends………..seems like yesterday when it’s actually almost 20 years ago????
Well, to make the long story short, let me take you to your childhood memories with these photos of things from our past…..
We started the journey from the second floor, and these are the things that we found:
Next, we went to the backyard in the first floor….and we had such a good time here…….these are what we should do to have a bunh of fun in the backyard garden:
Before going home, let’s explore the first floor:
That’s the end of our visit to Children Little Museum. Small but nice, and I suggest you visit this hidden gem that will bring back your memories (or your parents’ memories perhaps) and have a nice experience with all these things which are hard to find nowadays……
