Kedah Paddy Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • beautiful modern design with spacious area for displaying rice cultivation related items such as tools used in the early day of rice planting in Malaysia. displays includes major rice varieties in the world, pictures, scenario paintings, and posters of rice cultivation history which is posted on the circular building vertical beam - you will have to move around the pillars as you read the poster best of all is the 360 degree diorama mural of the area surrounding the museum, including the nearby Gunung Keriang, painted on the entire inside wall of the upper level - almost real

  • Impressive building like shoves of rice=paddy. Inside a mighty diorama of the surroundings, with all phases of rice production. And more info about all aspects of paddy.

  • 5rm entry for adult. Two floors of display on a circular layout. Dated. Not very well lit but nonetheless worth a one hour of visit. Toilet entry is 30sen. If u don’t have ur own transport good luck cos getting a grab to this place from city is easy but the return trip will be very hard cos there is no grab or taxi available in this kampong area. U will be literally trapped there and the counter staff barely know any English at all to help u. So go at yr own risk. Ask me to back again ? Nope never.

  • The Drive to the museum is already worth it as it is next to a large lime stone formation which can also be visited. When you go inside you might think at first it's a nice museum with artifacts related to rice cultivation and harvesting. You can also see rice varieties from around the world and then are some interesting stories and myths about Kedah. However be ready to be amazed when you go upstairs. It's the Kedah version of Panorama Mesdag. You can spend quite some time there and be amazed at the work.

  • A good 20 minutes drive into a padi farming village from the nearby Paddy museum lies a breathe taking view of the farming community of Alor Setar. Our unplanned journey into this uncatered territory was more by accident then by chance since we are unfamiliar with the surrounding and routes around this part of the district. Then again I have no qualms neither any complaints since I stumbled upon one of the most stunning and a breath taking display of a splendorous Sunset on show. It's was indeed a memorable candid view to watch the entire routine uninterrupted. Couple with a breezy weather and cooling air bracing across your face was indeed energizing. The area was huge and not many houses though, we came a cross a traditional wooden house, it looks old but still usable. The area was rather quiet and not much activities going on throughout the journey but it has not dampen my spirit, I took some pretty nice pictures for my collection. If you one of those frick that enjoys watching sunset here a place you must visit. All I can say is, its mesmerizing.
