    As I headed to Montana, from Utah, I saw the signs for "Blackfoot" and "Potato Museum", but did not exit. When I was headed back to Utah I decided to take the exit. I followed the signs (very nicely p...  more »

    This place was super super fun but the best part was definitely the restaurant at the end! You could build your own baked potato, get potato chocolate milk and get and ice cream baked potato! It's fun...  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.
