This place is very cool and has a lot of really interesting history about Idaho and the Potato. If you are ever in the area it is a small fee and only takes a little bit of your time to really understand how Idaho came...More

Idaho Potato Museum is a real gem. Really informative. And they don't take it that seriously. You can also see the world's largest potato crisp there. It's pretty big. The kids also got Idaho Potato pins for free.

Wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised by all the information about potatoes, lol. Lots of stuff I never knew. Well worth a little detour of the beaten path to the parks.

It was a great experienced visiting the Idaho Potato Museum, We've learned more about potatoes, things you never really pay attention to, but it's good for the kids to visit and adults as well. We even ate baked potatoes at their restaurant after the tour....More

$4 is a small price to pay for what is one of the strangest museum experiences you'll ever have. As you might expect, the history of the potato and potato machinery are involved. But then, there's more. Collections of potato peelers, mashers, and potato nails...More

This is an EXTREMELY inexpensive sight to see but lacks a big punch. You can go through this museum as quick as an hour or take your time and explore in about two. There are movies to watch, hands on activities, lots of real machinery...More
