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.

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 advertisements?

Stopped by and had an extremely good and informitive visit. They offer a senior discount/AAA discount. Displays are educational and enjoyable. Some of the memorabilia brought back great memories.

This is a great, little museum for the potato enthusiast! The film was excellent, the displays were very educational. Parking is right next to the building. The small on-grounds café was so good, we kept ordering and eating! Fun, unusual gift shop, too!

This was a very descriptive tour of the potato farming industry. There were several display boards describing the development of the potato agri-business. Also a film of the potato harvest and processing. The best part was the perfectly baked potato bar-YUM!

Stopped here thinking this was a cheesy museum. Boy, was I suprised. This was a very well put together museum about the history of a potato and how they are planted and harvested. It was very interesting.

My husband and I stopped here and loved this little Museum. Great and informative information about the history of potatoes. The largest Pringle ever made is located in this museum along with a cafe for you to eat a locally grown Idaho potato.

This was a nice little stop going through town. The museum is not huge and it doesn't take long to go through but it's nice. The building is an old railroad depot and there is a little cafe that offers baked potatoes, fries, and ice...More
