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.

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.
