Rice Village Museum

The two-storey museum building was formerly used as a rice barn by the Chishang Agricultural Association. Too small to use these days, it was left idle beside County Road 197 a few year ago. But its parking lot is a truly good place for community display because it is right next to a brick kiln and the village entrance. Thus the residents proposed a refurbishment project to the Council for Cultural Affairs, hoping to turn the barn into a site that provides introductory guided tours on Shishang’s rice culture and visitor information, while serving as a resting area and the residents’ activity center. Refurbishment of the main building was completed in April 2004 and the building is full of idyllic charm. All of the facilities were installed and inaugurated by October of the same year. Today, the barn has become residents’ gateway to the outside world.

The museum houses many early farming tools. It also explains the farming and R&D of organic Chishang rice. Simple yet delicious meals and organic polished rice, organic brown rice and organic aromatic rice from Chishang are available for sale. Creative rice foods inspired by tradition and made by students of a community cooking class for moms are also for sale. Workshops on rice food, colorful rice painting and kilned bricks are held on a regular basis, making the museum a meaningful educational space.
