The museum was really interesting if you are interested in local culture. It provides a fair amount of information on the cultivating of rice, which is Malaysia's main staple food. The museum itself is indoors and air conditioned, which was very welcome since we went on the hottest day of our week-long visit. Not necessarily a must-see for everyone but... More

We did not visit the place from inside as time did not permit us, but you can drive along this place and it looks lovely.

The main entrance will certainly turns u away as it was so dirty and not a single person can be seen there. We tried to explore the outer area a bit before deciding whether to enter it or not but unfortunately the exterior is definitely a turn off with all the rubbish scattered here and there. With this - we... More

We went here for an evening meal, so missed out on the rice tour. The surroundings are clean and attractive, with extensive paddy fields. There are buffaloes, but they were far away from us at the time. They were waiting for the rain to flood the fields as there had been a drought for a while. Our dinner was a... More

This is one of Langkawi's eco -tourism attractions and informs you all about the growing of rice, Asia's staple diet. Get up close with water buffalo in the fields.

I went to the rice museum and spent more time getting there than I spent at the museum. I tried to pay the entrance fee and there was nobody there taking money. I wandered around for a bit, and an employee followed me around and showed me things. There's not much to see, but the rice fields are pretty.

Could be better if they had guides around to show us the process of paddy field harvesting, sowing and irrigation techniques.

This proved really interesting. We saw the process from planting to harvesting. Even got close up to the water buffalo! The indoor exhibition was very well presented and gave quite an insight to the uses of rice.

If you have never seen how rice is grown and harvested this place makes for an interesting visit. Allow about an hour. The overall setting is lovely and pastoral.
