Founded in 1885, Royal Selangor is the world's foremost name in quality pewter, a brand synonymous with design and craftsmanship.

The Visitor Centre takes you back over a hundred years to the founding of Royal Selangor and its inextricable link with the history of Malaysia, to the present day as the world's largest pewter maker and its expansion into gold and sterling silver.

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon by ourselves and we were accommodated immediately and our guide Lawrence was friendly and knowledgeable. The place is full of interesting information and to see how things are made. We would've given the place a higher rating if we could have attended the workshop which lacked staff for no obvious reason. One tip before... More

Excellent tour around the facility with a chance to try your hand at some of the techinques. They also have options to take part in paid activities like making your own jewellery, etc. Items on sale at the venue cost the same whether you buy it there or any other retailer.

Visited as part of a cruise tour and was surprisingly impressed. The history of this business and the way they have maintained their competitiveness is admirable. The hand finishes are super cool. Well worth a visit and a purchase

I did this tour as part of a Cruise ship tour. I was concerned it would just be a selling opportunity, and while it is.... the museum is fascinating as is the factory. I really enjoyed the demonstrations as well as the exhibits. The store prices are also very good. So if you like pewter and you enjoy a classy... More
