Royal Selangor Pewter Visitor Centre and Factory, Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur 26 October 2010
A great place to drop by. Admission is free. 9am-5pm daily. Visitor centre is divided into a museum that displays pewtersmithing tools, 100 years old antique and ancient tin currency, a gallery showcase current products and Royal Selangor live production factory. There is a guide accompanying you throughout the trip which takes less than an hour. We are not allowed to walk in without a guide. :( So, you can't take your own sweet time browsing around.
Hui is looking at tons of pewter shavings, which will be melted and recyle. Right- money tree mould.
En @Chamber of Chimes, where you will go thru a sound experiential exhibits, hear sound created by wood, bamboo, rolled pewter & cast pewter. Right- Hui's first taste of 100plus, a welcome drink served in a pewter mug, given at the entrance of the factory. For the first time, En drank the whole mug of 100plus happily. :)
