We really knew nothing about rice but we picked up a lot of information here. There were displays inside the museum building but the most interesting part was the active portion outside where people were showing us how the rice was cultivated and grown and moved.

The rice museum is set up in a village style park where one can visit different levels of rice growing. The Guide had a good knowledge of all sorts of herbs and fruits, we had at least two hours of interesting discoveries in the museum, including planting rice in a paddy field.

Probably not for the large audience. Nice fields, peaceful but not the most exciting museum I've been to.

It was rainy and we decide to vist the rice museum which is close to our hotel. The rice fields are great, the museum itself is informative and free. We didn't have the chance to have dinner in small stalls next to the rice fields, it looks really nice to have dinner there

Rice Museum located inside Laman Padi with great and peaceful 'kampung' ambience, restaurant, spa, chalets and paddy fields. Rice Museum had an indoor and outdoor inhibitions. Indoor are with air-cond and many tools and documented the paddy cultivation procedure. The only down side of the indoor museum is the display of the varieties 'paddy rice from all over the world'...

The landscaping and setup at this "park" are so tranquil compared to the busy road and beach strip just outside. If you need to escape the heat and traffic for 30 minutes, I recommend going. I arrived right at closing time, so had the place mostly to myself. Very pleasant.

It was very exciting, We learnt how to grow rice, and smelled a lot of herbs, tasted unknown fruits, opened coconut. If you go three, ask someone to guide u around, because you cannot enjoy this place without guiding. We met a guy who showed us everything, 1,5-2 hours with a lot of fun.

I feel lucky because i found and visited this simple yet marvellous place that combines theory and history of rice with practical farming just outside the building. Not to mention the beautiful green fields and the buffalos, and above all it's all free! A must visit place.

We have been warned by the taxi driver that during low season the kids cannot plant their own rice or walk into the muddy rice fields but went there anyways. Ticket counter was empty but the doors were open and we had a tour through an empty small museum. The outside areas were also abandonned but do check out this... More
