Time Out says

Time travelling may be impossible as of now, but Type8ar gives us a taste of what it would be like. Find this space tucked away on the second floor along the streets of Haji Lane with its impressive collection of over 50 vintage typewriters – a haven for analogue enthusiasts and typewriter lovers. Feast your eyes on a transparent Royal typewriter that was used in the United States prison, or perhaps the MusicWriter that was specifically used to type music scores. 

The best part? It is not just a museum. One can try your hand at typing your very own note, or if you’re looking for something more in-depth, opt for their workshop to learn the basic workings and history behind the classic machine and bring home a personal typewritten memorabilia at $48 per participant. The typewriters are also available for rent on-site at $18 for 30 mins, $28 for 60 mins and $38 for 120 mins, with complimentary beverage and unlimited supply to papers, card stock, stationeries and whatnot. So if you have something to say, why not try typing it out on a click-clack machine for a change?
