I had shivers down my spine visiting here and it was a true highlight to meet a third generation owner and hear the story of the melon pot and her great grandfather.

Great day at Selangor - very much enjoyed the tour and interactive activity of hammering out my own bowl. It can get noisy if a lot of people doing the activity.

The guided tour of the pewter factory is nice and short. It's informative and you get to try your hand at hammering some pewter. It's only a short distance from the city centre so it's worth a trip
