My husband and I enjoyed the Rice Museum. It was interesting and we learned a lot of the history of ships of the area. We like learning about the history of a town and area! more »
It had very good exhibits and information and it was even hands on it gave you rice from the plant and let you shell it and all!! It showed an entire boat ruin that was really cool! Its placing was very unique inside of a clock tower.
I loved the Rice Museum tour.....so much history here! And I love the gift shop/gallery....bought a beautiful cotton-pearl necklace. I'll definitely be back!
