You just sit in the center it it revolves around, making a complete round in 25 minutes. The drawing depicts the natural scenery around the museum and also the local... More

Well worth a visit we have visited numerous times with friends and they all find it interesting. The panoramic view is different and it is all very low key. There is a small shop downstairs and small eatery outside with toilets. Transport required. Just remember it is RICE .

Very poor museum, nothing much to see. Very warm inside. Super boring and RM5 is far too expensive for such a quality.

The slow spin as you are seated gives you a comprehensive view of the beautiful paddy field landscape, the kampong village scenes, the pasar/market activities. It was really an eye opener even for a local inhabitant but sadly this great concept and structure showcasing the Rice Bowl of Malaysia is not well maintained. A great potential and tourist attraction must... More
