The Idaho Potato Museum is a unique museum which appropriately showcases Idaho’s Famous Potatoes. The rich graphics showcasing the history of the potato will lead you through the revolution of the potato industry. From the original potato planted in Idaho, to the largest potato chip made by the Pringle’s Company in Jackson, TN. You’ll be intrigued as you stroll through the Museum which was built in 1912.

Once a bustling flurry of activity, the stone depot represents significant ties between the railroad and the potato industry. The Potato Museum provides information on potato history, the growing and harvesting process, nutrition, trivia and educational potato facts. Watch a short video presentation on how the potato industry has developed.

Relax in the small park with a picnic area. The next time you’re in “The Potato Capital of the World,” or just passing through, please take some time to tour the Idaho Potato Museum.
