  • From the outside, the museum is not particularly impressive. When you enter it and start walking around, it is actually quite large. It has much information about the history of the Idaho potato indus...  more »
  • Great history lesson here and education. Fun for all ages. Very interesting stop. We had just had lunch. Bummer. Would have dined at their cafe. Cute gifts to take home.  more »
  • Here, several times back in 2010, to visit good friends. Short trip through the museum, but well worth it. Who knew Pringles has the record for the largest potato chip? And Marilyn Monroe modeled for ...  more »

  • Cute place with reasonable admission price. Cool photo op in front with a giant baked potato with butter. My kids enjoyed it and they had a fun area for them to play with Mr Potato Heads and simple potato-themed computer games. We ate at the cafe, too - the baked potatoes were tasty (perfectly soft) and French fries were good, too.
  • Six stars! Our trip to Idaho would not have been complete without a visit to the potato museum! We learned so much! I couldn't stop grinning. Best $3.50 ever spent.
  • An interesting little spot. I usually don't stop at these kinds of places, but I wasn't in a rush and it seemed like a funny place to go. It was interesting to learn about potato production and products, but the potato people were utterly terrifying. I'm not sure I'll ever get their cold, dead eyes out of my head.
  • Stopped on our way back from Idaho Falls to Boise. Very neat place with wonderful hosts. Fresh French Fries was yummy, a lot of history about potatoes and artifacts from earlier cultivation.
  • 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.
