Locals and frequent tourists recommended this place, so naturally we were very excited... We had hoped for more. The displays felt out of date, but the 3D diseased potatoes were cool and the antique farming equipment was in very good condition. The french fries and...More

The Potato Museum displays a complete history of the potato farming industry on Prince Edward Island over many generations. It includes many pieces of working farm equipment. There is also an exhibition of local history that is worth seeing.

Surprise! It's a totally serious museum about potatoes and their cultivation. A very "learnative" experience as I heard one patron say. But it's also pretty fun. There's some very rare photos taken by a local which cover about 100 years of history of the community...More

It didn't help that the restaurant had run out of the recommended chili fries and potato fudge due to a promo having been filmed in the a.m. That, of course, could be overlooked, but the museum still has that dated feel that reviewers have commented...More
