“Enjoyed Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

We had a large group of US/Asian's tour the Royal Selangor Pewter factory and enjoyed the museum, demonstrations and creating our own pewter bowls. I also purchased a pair of pewter wine glasses for my daughters wedding in the factory store.

“Interesting....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

It's an interesting place where they explain how they manufacture Pewter and design beautiful things with it.... The pewter products are however very expensive.
Worth a stop if you have time...
