  • We just had to stop to take a snap of the giant potato, but found much more. Really interesting small museum, with a cute little cafe serving french fries and baked potatoes, and as 'out of staters', ...  read more »
  • We enjoyed our tour, friendly staff who made us delicious French fries and fish on a potato stick for a nominal charge. You have to take a photo by the biggest baked potato!!! 
  • We stopped here just so my wife could her picture with the large potato. The museum is pretty informative if you are into potato's. 
  • As somewhat of a local, this place gets a lot of laughs. I've never thought to actually check it out until recently... but I'm glad I did. It was surprisingly well done, with some really cool little exhibits. For $3 /adult admission, it's definitely worth checking it out to learn something new about the potato (and trust me, you will), and even to grab a quick bite to eat and their nice little potato bar. I'll admit the potato bar was a good marketing move, because by the time you've finished up in the museum with the smell of cooked tater wafting through the air, you've likely worked up an appetite. Worth noting, but the girl in the gift shop acted like she was there on community service from an underage drinking ticket or something. She was rather unpleasant to deal with. However, everyone else was very bubbly and pleasant.
  • This is an excellent small town Museum. The exhibits were just renovated in early summer 2016, and they're rather fun while also educational. The new Potato Station Cafe also has some good food, and the "potato" ice cream is fun and tasty as well.
  • Quite little musem "Loaded" with information about potatos...grab some fresh cut fries while your there to complete the tour!!!
  • Just a fun little place to visit. You don't need an incredibly long time, but just a nice bit of small town charm.
  • This is a very cute museum dedicated to all things potatoes. They have a very large display of potato peelers and potato mashers. They have lots of old potato growing and harvesting machinery. You can learn about the history of potato growing in Idaho. The gift shop it is very fun. Who knew there were that many different mr. Potato heads?
