I've passed this attraction without stopping twice before, but the name alone said that I couldn't ignore it the third time. I expected a kitsch, roadside attraction. What I found was a serious museum about potato farming. The main exhibition requires about an hour to see, and focuses on the history of potato farming in Canada, the ever-changing technology of farming potatoes, the potato farming and food processing industry, engineering a better potato, and the process of transforming a potato from a seed waiting to be planted to a potato chip or french fry on your table. The exhibition closes with a tribute to leaders in the industry. The gift shop avoids the impulse to sell kitch potato-themed gifts (no Mr. Potato-head). Instead, visitors should indulge in the fries served in the Harvest Cafe. Come with an appetite--the portions are generous. The day we visited, an artist was trying to create the world's largest piece of artwork made of french fries in honor of the upcoming National French Fry Day (July 13).
