From Batu Ferringhi, drive towards Teluk Bahang and take a left turn to Teluk Bahang Road like going to the Escape Park/ Butterfly Park, you need to take a left before the Craft Batik building (it is situated somewhere behind the Craft Batik complex), after about 100m you will see a small road on your right, take that right and you will see the Toy Museum. It is a white, single storey building with unshaded and a few parking lots

It is the largest toy museum in the world. The 1,000 square meters museum, was first opened in 2005 in Tanjung Bungah but since then relocated, was also recognized by the Malaysian Book of Records as the first toy museum in the country. The museum is visited by an estimated 100,000 visitors each year.

The museum was founded by an engineer, Mr. Loh Lean Cheng. He got his inspiration while visiting the London Toy and Model Museum. The first toy that he bought back in 1973 was a Popeye doll
