Royal Selangor Visitor Centre
Malaysia is home to the world’s finest pewter and Royal Selangor is its most well known name. Visitors to the country often include the Royal Selangor factory in their travel plans and with the completion of its new ultra modern Visitor Centre, a visit will be even more fascinating.
The tour begins at the Gallery. Learn about the company’s pioneering past and its transformation to a world-class company. Its fascinating Pewter Museum and astonishing two-storey high replica of the Petronas Twin Towers created out of 7,062 pewter tankards will delight you. To further excite your senses, there are interactive exhibits at the Chamber of Chimes, Hall of Finishes and Giant Weighing Scale. Computer buffs may want to check out the Game Port that has specially designed games.
The Factory Tour shows you ‘live’ the different pewter production processes - casting, filing, polishing, soldering, hammering and engraving, as well as the intricacies of making Selberan’s fine jewelry.
Operating hours: Sun to Fri 8.30 am to 5 pm, Sat 8.30 am to 4.30 pm. Call up the centre to register for the School of Hard Knocks before going to the centre. Entrance fee: FREE
