Idaho Potato Museum reviews
Drove over 50 miles out of the way to visit because their website said it was open. Arrived to locked doors and a closed sign. On my son’s birthday at that. more »
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)
