This is well worth a visit even if out of your way. The exhibits are informative, well laid-out, comprehensive and sprinkled with delightful Canadian dry humor. I also recommend the fries in the on-site restaurant -- delicious!

Great little museum, restaurant and gift shop. The food was amazing, but such large portions! Was so hard to finish. Spent probably 2 hours in the whole thing, and really enjoyed my time there. If you love potatoes it is the right place to go!

If you love potatoes then you have to go here! It's all about the potato and the fries/poutine is absolutely a must-have. The potato fudge is also a good thing to try.

Very interesting centre. Lots of very old machinery to look at from very old to more modern times. A nice gift shop and a good restaurant on sight. You just have to try one of their baked potatoes.

I love potatoes, so was interested in this museum. Some of the videos are dated and would be nice to have them updated a bit or a little easier to hear. They were pretty low to the ground. It would also be interesting to have...More
