IRRI Riceworld Museum

At the corner of Pili Drive and IPB Road is the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI). This vast complex houses training facilities, experimental farms, laboratories, the International Rice Genebank and the Riceworld Museum. Riceworld is IRRI’s public awareness facility. It showcases basic information about rice, some of the Institute’s research outputs and a collection of artworks and artifacts related to rice. The museum is open from Monday to Friday (except public holidays) from 8:00AM to 5:00PM. Entrance is free.

If you are visiting UPLB-IPB and still have time to spare, I highly recommend visiting Riceworld along the way. Riceworld have lots to tell you about the most important cereal crop in the world.

If you have any questions about Riceworld please leave a comment below. Happy growing!
