  • The museum is small but very informative. It is good for adults as well as children. It would take make 1 hour. Be sure to stop at the small cafe for potato treats after. We got huckleberry potato...  more »

  • Helpful and friendly gift shop staff. Interesting displays. Unfortunately, it seemed that they could not decide.between serious and kitsch at times. The cafe features potato goodies but was out of about half of the items listed on the menu when we were there. The french fries were good though, hot and tasty.
  • It's a fun little museum. It is very little (really only two rooms a gift shop and an ice cream shop). But it is fun to learn about the history of the potato, see different tools used in the planting and harvesting, see potato collectibles, and taste ice cream made with potatoes (no it doesn't taste like potatoes)
  • Thoroughly enjoyed our side-trip here. It’s a quirky, yet informative and interesting place. And the potato in the cafe was great!
  • This place may seem corny but it's actually a very informative museum. The exhibits are full of info and they even have a hands on area for the kids. The gift shop is full of unique potato themed gifts, and they have a cafe where you can order different potato themed items. A little sitting area inside and outside to eat at. Overall interesting and fun
  • Got there at 615pm. Figured they were closed. Spent too much time on the old potato planting and harvesting equipment. Thenrealized they were open till 7. Went inside and got a great tour. Could have spent 2 or more hours. Ended with potato ice cream. It was good. This is a must stop in southeast Idaho.
