  • 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.
  • Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area or driving through. I learned a surprising amount about potatoes I did not know.
  • 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.
  • Fun! Learn everything possible about potatoes. There is also a nice little cafe that has some good potatoes themed dishes.
  • Quite little musem "Loaded" with information about potatos...grab some fresh cut fries while your there to complete the tour!!!
