  • Nice and small museum. Entry is only $4 - so not a big thing. For me, the most interesting parts are the historical machines to plant and harvest potatoes. If you have the opportunity then give it a short visit.
  • The Idaho Potato Museum showcases the history and cultivation of potatoes. A café and gift shop are available to visitors!
  • A must stop for locals and out of towners! Please go to the museum! It is only $3 for entry and they recently redid the whole place. It is so cute and full of information. In the renovations they opened a small café area. Everything in there is a potato product, so don't plan on a full huge lunch, but it is delicious and fresh! There is a kids area (not huge, but somewhere they can play with things). And there is a small area to sit and watch a few videos. Definitely go check this place out and get your photo in front of the giant potato. The staff is really friendly and will take a picture for you if you need.
  • The gave me a free box of mashed potatoes because I was from out of state, so yes it's awesome.
  • I spontaneously came here with my friend visiting from Canada; we saw a sign on the road and went for it. We arrived five minutes before closing, and were not allowed to check the museum out unless we paid full admission. Lame. She's back in Canada now, probably never to visit the joint again. But she did get a photo with a giant potato in front of the museum.
