A great outing for the family at Royal Selangor
Apr 2021 • Family
We booked 8 bespoke whisky glasses and brought the kids to the visitor centre to collect and learn more about pewter.

The tour was very interesting and both my sons enjoyed it very much. They both took a slot in the School of Hard Knocks and got their own souvenir and we had lunch at the cafe.

Been all around tourist sites around the world and I dare say the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre is world class and it is a shame not many locals know about it (we discovered after sharing the activities on Facebook).

Good job guys, keep it up!

One of the best museum experiences
I went here with my SO on a weekend and we were not expecting the level of hospitality that we received. From the moment we entered their doors we were greeted with such warm and amazing employees.

At the reception they explain what their packages are and are not at all pushy for you to sign up to any.

You have the option to sign up later and proceed with a FREE guided tour first. The level of detail that the guide goes into explaining each exhibit is amazing. I couldn’t believe that it was a free service. I almost wanted to offer to pay because it was such great service.

The tour includes a couple of demonstrations as to how they make some of their products by one of their employees. They even let you try your hand at doing what the employees do on a regular basis and suffice to say I failed horribly (it’s so hard!).

At the end of the tour they remind you of what further packages are available. There’s a foundry package where you can try your hand and smelting your own jewelry or a knocking package where you can make your own pewter bowl. As we came a bit late we didn’t have time to do either and choose to use our remaining time to view their shop and grab a drink at their gift shop.

Even their gift shop is like a guided tour! With employees explaining each of the pieces. Mind you at no point in time did I feel pressured to purchase anything.

Their cafe was very relaxing and prices were very reasonable. My SO had a pot of earl grey tea which was served in a miniature “Lucky Pot” which we found so cute.

Long story short. If you’ve never been here you should definitely give it a shot. It’s great fun as a date as well as a family trip.

Great Fun! Two thumbs up for both Mrl Azree and Ms Joyce.

We enjoyed the lunch at the cafe before the workshop. The roast chicken was delicious and mashed potatoes was amazing. The workshop by Azree was very interesting for me and my friends. We really enjoyed ourself at the workshop making rings, key chains and necklace. Lastly, the guided tour by Ms Joyce was very informative. Overall, 5 stars !!!

Entrance is free to the factory. The workshop is a nominal fee and you get to take away your work. Enjoy :)

It was great to hear some story behind some display and learn about the production process of tin.
Hands on activity was a hit; engraving our name into the tin and smashing it into a bowl.

A Malaysian Treasure at Royal Selangor
Oct 2020
A clever, fascinating, modern and highly professional free guided exhibition through Royal Selangor’s history and achievements which includes a tour of the actual factory and the chance to try your hand at being a craftsman/woman. Child-friendly with something for everyone. Amelia was an outstanding guide and the tour never felt like a sales pitch, but rather a genuinely impressive, successful and proud Malaysian family business. A little off the beaten track in KL, but worth it. The tour eans in the stunning showroom and cafe.

An Amazing Experience!
Aug 2020
As I visit this place after 9 years after my 1st visit as a student, nostalgia, wonderful memories flooded back. It is noteworthy, that the place has maintains its charm and continues to enthral us.

We had a wonderful tour of the visitor center. The history, science and process of pewter crafting leaves you spellbound.

The cafe has some great food and last but not the least, I had a great time interacting with SC ( I forgot her full name - Apologies!) in the sales gallery. I had one of my few interesting and fascinating conversations with her.

Looking forward to visiting the place again, next time for the workshop and surely to have another interesting experience at Royal Selengor Visitor Center.
