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.

Dear Aleshame_12. I am so sorry to hear about your disappointing visit to the Idaho Potato Museum. Our hours of operation are listed on our website. We have summer hours and winter hours. Both are listed on our website and with various online sites like Google, Facebook, etc. Our phone number is also listed. We have had to close our cafe unexpectedly for a few days on and off while we worked out staffing issues. Perhaps you thought the museum was closed, too? Or did you arrive on a Sunday? We are always closed Sundays except for June, July and August. Fortunately, our giant baked potato is located on the outside of the building so visitors coming to the museum during our off hours still have the opportunity to take their selfie with the spud. And, we have a short outdoor walking tour of vintage potato farming equipment located on the south side of the building. Again, we are so sorry you were unable to tour the museum!

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 ice cream and french fries. Both were tasty and I would recommend this museum to anyone passing through the area. Worth the side trip and 1 hour.

Never knew that there was so much to learn about potatoes. Very informative. The gift shop has some very cool items and they use a potato sack instead of bags. The baked potato and french fries at the cafe are great! Well worth a quick 1-1.5 hour stop!

We were short on time but hungry , so we stopped at the Potato Station Cafe for a delicious loaded baked potato topped off by some potato ice cream. Well worth the stop.

Hi Recorder! Thank you for your kind review! We are so happy you enjoyed visit to the museum's Potato Station Cafe! I agree with you -- our baked potatoes are lovely! They are great anytime but I especially love them on cold days! Thank you again for taking time to review the Idaho Potato Museum.
