Not really sure what we were expecting to be honest, but was ok. Interesting history of how chips came about and discounted chips, sorry Frites!, at the end. Again good for kids but adults will find a little basic. Good for a rainy day though.

The chips I had been looking forward too for the whole entire coach chip turned out not so great :-( the after taste from the oil was not my cup of tea at all and the chicken snacks were somewhat unfavorable too. Sad too say this place wasn't for me however you can pick up a very cool peeler

A must for the first time visitor to Brugge explaining the confusion between the French Fry and its Belgian origins along with the history of the potato. A good portion of chips at the end.

The story of the Belgian [French] Fries and the potato. Sounds a bit boring but quite interesting if you have the time. Lovely plate of chips at the end.

Why tour the Friet Museum? Why not! The story of the potato is a great story and you can get the BEST fries at the end.
