Arts & Museums

Galeria Perdana

The Galeria Perdana is one of Langkawi's top museums and features an array of displays in a stunning building. Visitors will find the Galeria Perdana located up in north-east Langkawi, in the village of Kilim. Inside is a collection comprising around 2,500 items that were gifts to former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad (in office between 1981 and 2003). Many of the gifts were offered by foreign countries and include cars, art and furniture, as well as Ming vases decorated with his image, weapons and oriental treasures. Be sure to look up and admire the hand-painted ceiling, and take a stroll around the landscaped gardens surrounding the building itself.


Laman Padi Rice Garden

Situated within the Pantai Cenang area, at the northern end, is this fine museum that tells all about the growing of rice on Langkawi. It features paddy fields and displays explaining everything that you could possibly wish to know about the local cultivation of rice. You can see workers planting and harvesting rice, and the views from the various lookouts are sublime. The Laman Padi Rice Garden is easy to find, being sited near to the Casa Del Mar Hotel.


Lagenda Park

This beautifully landscaped park is something of an open-air museum and is located in the town of Kuah, where it boasts four lakes and many monuments. These particular monuments represent various myths and legends associated with the island, although the main attraction for most is the artificial beach and lakes. If you are short on time, or don't care too much about heading to one of the in-depth museums inland, Lagenda Park is your best bet for taking in a bit of culture and is especially suitable for families.


Craft Cultural Complex

Located in Teluk Yu and close to the Pantai Pasir Hitam beachfront, the huge Craft Cultural Complex is home to four separate museums and showcases the cultural heritage of Malaysia's islands. You can see live demonstrations of songket weaving methods, as well as reams of Malaysian handicrafts, while further exhibitions are dedicated to prominent locals and weddings. There is also a gift shop onsite selling various arts and crafts suitable for souvenirs.


Art of Paradise

Langkawi Art in Paradise 3D Museum, hailed as the largest 3D art museum in Malaysia and second largest in the world, features more than 200 impressive artworks that appear almost lifelike when photographed. Accessible within a 20-minute drive from Langkawi International Airport, this unique attraction is situated next to the iconic Langkawi Cable Car in The Oriental Village, Burau Bay. A three-storey building with an exhibition space that covers 2,000 square metres, Langkawi Art in Paradise 3D Museum is divided into nine interactive zones including optical illusion, aquatic, safari, fantasy, classic, castles, landscapes, Egyptian, and Malaysian zones. There are more than 200 beautiful and meticulous artworks, all of which are hand-painted by 23 leading Korean artists in collaboration with talented local artists.
