Guests are impressed by the smaller copy of Petronas Twin Towers of 9.1 metre height made from pewter tankard and the largest tankard in 1987. The main attraction remains the “School of hard knocks”. At this workshop, you can achieve your first product of pewter, grave your name on it and take it as a souvenir.
The Chamber of Chimed is the most preferred part of the tour. It’s where you can learn the difference between the sound of cast pewter and other metals. You shouldn’t also miss the cozy restaurant with a view on the garden and its tasty typical dishes.
What makes the Royal Selangor visitor centre a great learning experience is the interactivity with exhibits and hands-on approach.
