    Fun free admission tour and paid workshop on Pewter
    Have fun here with your family for short 2 or 3 hours. Start with pewter museum tour with no admission fee. You may walk in as usually there is no queue at the entrance. The tour will have English speaking guide that excitingly explain all the details and history of the Royal Selangor and pewter in Kuala Lumpur. The tour is fun and informative. You will visit multiple halls that being arranged nicely. During the tour also, will go visit the factory and being explain on the process of making the pewter end products. In the middle of the tour, you also being offered some cold drinks inside small pewter pitcher but you can't bring the pitcher back with you, please return it back =). After done with the tour, you will end at the souvenir shop/ cafe at the lower ground of the building. Then you may choose either to attend workshop session (with some fee) or take some time to enjoys the cafe. The cakes and coffee there are yummy. My family joined the school of Hard Knocks Workshop and have fun knocking and personalize the pewter bowl. You can bring home the pewter bowl, apron and certificate after completed the workshop. Adult or kid really have fun in the workshop. Highly recommended to come and visit this place.

    Great Experience - Great Service!
    Brought my mom & wifey to visit Royal Selangor and was very impressed with the personalized tour by the young lady & boy (can't remember their name). They were very accommodative and patiently answer our questions. At the end of the tour, I decided to buy one of the beautiful products and the staff especially Dayang & Cristal were also very friendly. They also happily did a gift wrapping when I told them I'm buying a gift for my mom. I find it a very nice gesture and I truly appreciate such efforts. Well done Team Royal Selangor. You made our day!

    Wonderful Visit
    The visit for the museum and the factoy is foc. Interesting story behind how did royal selangor been built up and also how pewters are made .There's also a demo area which you can see how the workers produce pewter items. After that they'll offer two workshops which you can make your own product using pewter or another one is making yr own pewter dish using traditional tools. There're also a showroom which you can see the most complete products from royal selangor and also their sister company selberan and comyns. There's a cafe too which you can enjoy your meal after the tour. Lastly, I do recommend to take a picture with th world's largest pewter tankard which loacted at the entrance to the museum to record down your memories.

    Historical place to learn about Pewter industry in Malaysia
    We visited Royal Selangor Visitor centre without booking in advance. The staff were polite and welcoming, and was available to give us a guided tour within 5 minutes. The young tour guide, Poh, was very professional and knowledgeable. The whole place was elegantly presented, products in the show room have a huge variety, and the pecan cake in the Cafe was delicious. It’s definitely a place worth visiting!

    Don't miss their display gallery
    You will be welcomed here with a welcome drink followed by a walk around the factory. Dont miss the Pewter beer mug at the entrance...huge and heavy ! The walk around the display gallery was beautiful, each artefact made of pewter including dinner sets, wine glass set, several portraits, marvel miniatures and so on. They have a small and cozy cafe inside - you can rest before you head out for your tours. Overall an amazing experience.

We are visiting Kuala Lumpur from NY and very much enjoyed our visit to this historic facility. The factory tour led by Vasanth was very insightful and such a learning experience. I recommend making this a stop during your visit to KL.

An excellent guided presentation by Louis. And a deeper understanding and appreciation of the handwork involved: nothing is completely machine made.
