Now this is a cool place! It's only $3, it really should be $5. They have ancient potato peelers and they have mr. Potato Head, and they have so much information it's excellent! It's very well presented, they cover everything. And very informational and educational. It is well worth the time and they should charge more.

Visited long ago but now that Potato Museum is greatly improved and we'll worth a visit. Wall murals explain how the potato migrated to the world from South America. A whole new kid area for free Mr Potato Head type expression. Old equipment on display as well as new videos. Plenty of free parking.

A fun rest stop on my long drive. There's a huge potato structure outside the building. Great photo spot to remind you are in Idaho, home of famous potatoes. We tried their $2 potato in the cafe which was nice. The little giftshop has some nice souvenirs. We got something cute. The cashier(owner?) was super friendly. I like his belt.

The museum had a funny smell but was clean and had friendly staff. They had potato cartoon characters. They had the largest Pringle. They had some informative videos. I had a good time and was able to enjoy some delicious authentic potatoes after my experience.
