Found this place while looking for a bathroom. Neat to learn about the history of the potato price wasn't too bad either I think it was $5 a person.

As we neared Bristol, we saw a sign for Potato World, and it was unanimous - let's stop! Right off the highway, quiet museum, with plenty of history. Very friendly staff who answered all our questions, and exhibited patience with rambunctious boys. Children enjoyed it, and still play with their gift shop stress ball potatoes. Very reasonable prices . Unfortunately,... More

Great place, friendly staff, just a shame that we failed to check the opening hours of the cafe - were looking forward to trying some of the cafe's potato items as a lunch stop on our journey, but didn't expect the cafe to be closed on a Saturday :(

Who knew Bristol New Brunswick was the potato capital of the world? That when I pulled off to get gas and look around is find McCain fries right there and next door to them the potato world museum and restaurant? Of course I had to check it out. Lots of fun facts, historic pics, food and fries and other fun... More

Enjoyed the history and explanation of the potato growing business in New Brunswick. The museum is small, but it is inexpensive ($5), worth the stop & don't forget to stop for French Fries at the snack bar.

We decided to visit Potato World when one of our friends from Nova Scotia was visiting us. We were not disappointed. The museum is utterly amazing; kudos to those who created the museum as it is filled with wonderful facts and equipment to do with potato harvesting from the past. The cafe has delicious food; prices are very reasonable. Lovely... More

In about 20 minutes you can learn pretty much about the history of potatoes in Canada. There are a fair amount of old machineries used to harvest the potatoes. We payed 16$ for a family, 2 adults and 2 children.
