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.

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

The farmer responsible for the rice farm is super friendly and interesting. Unfortunately, the museum is abandoned. Inside the museum there is a spa. Make sure to make a reservation. I had a hair treatment with lavender mask. Then a shower followed with massage and at last a foot massage. I regret not buying the lavender mask. It smells amazing.... More

Owesome. You can see the seasons of the padi farm. How they grow the padi and how the padi has been harvested. Suitable for young people to get knowledge .

Have catwalk around the museum and you will understand how the rice has been grown over the years. A great display of photos and equipment. Then step outside to the rice fields and see how the rice is planted. You will see various stages of the the rice crop.

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
