About the Museum
The Idaho Potato Museum aims to educate visitors about the Idaho Potato. Located in an old Oregon Short Line Railroad Depot, the museum features rich exhibits that showcase the history of the potato and the potato industry. Visitors will learn facts ranging from the first potato planted in Idaho to the largest potato crisp made by the Pringles Company, along with the growing and harvesting process, nutrition information, and other trivia. The historic building that houses the museum was built in 1912 and represents the significant ties between the railroad and potato industries. The museum is also home to the Potato Station Café, where visitors can enjoy real Idaho potatoes.
