If you know nothing about rice growing this is a good exhibit. Also ingesting intro to the culture of the island. Poor signage at the front... go through to the back.

I spent a sunny morning in this extraordinary attraction right across Jalan Pantai Cenang from Casa del Mar hotel. The premises of the museum were amazingly well kept.

The reviews for this place are quite mixed so we went along not knowing what to expect.

Due to poor maintenance, the place was not as good as it could have been. It would have been great if there were guides or demonstrations but instead visitors were left wandering on their own aimlessly. Pity ...
