This museum is considered a tourist attraction in Kedah. Apart from its interesting name of MUZIUM PADI, do not expect too much from the museum.

Those paddy-farming tools, traditional and modern, can be found in the museum with lengthy descriptions attached, which is lacking in interesting information. The only highlight in the museum is the wall-painting which is located at the upper floor of the museum. It depicts the scene of paddy fields in Kedah.

Honestly, never before have I been to such a boring museum. Perhaps they should have some interactive pieces rather than "everything is in the glass". Thus I would say, one visit is more than enough!

Paddy is the staple of life in Malaysia. As much as I appreciate the important role it plays in our daily Malaysian diet, looking through the various types of paddy plants bores me to no end.

Traditional and modern tools used in rice paddy farming can be found in glass cases, I didn't really bother to read up the facts. Standing on a revolving platform in the upper level, I admired the mural portraying the paddy fields in Kedah. The mural not only captured the idyllic scenery of Kedah, but also the diligent farmers who were harvesting paddy. It was, without a doubt, the highlight of the visit.
