What we say: 3.5 stars

Playing drums, learning traditional self-defence moves and learning the strategic manoeuvres of spinning heavy wooden tops -- visitors are encouraged to give them all a go. The performers at the centre are also quite enthusiastic, which can be contagious.

Programmes are run for a gamut of traditional games including rebana (giant drum), silat tari (self-defence), gasing uri (top spinning), demo buat wau (kite making) and Wayang kulit (shadow play).

Unless there is a tour bus parked at the centre, it will most likely be you and a dozen or so folks.
