Meet the Giant Potato at the Potato Museum
Plan your next trek through Idaho. Be sure to visit the Potato Museum & Gift Shop – built in 1912, it's a must-see southern Idaho attraction.
Located in Blackfoot in the old Oregon Short Line Railroad Depot, the museum showcases the history of "Idaho's Famous Potatoes" throughout the exhibits.
Schedule plenty of time to tour the museum and learn about the entire Idaho potato industry. From the early beginnings in 1847, to the development of the first Russet Burbank potato in 1872 and the processing, irrigation and land development, there's plenty to learn.
Be sure to browse the wonderful selection of items in the gift shop too. Since the museum's slogan is "we give taters to out-of-staters," each visitor receives a box of hash browns to enjoy, after leaving the museum. This unique museum is a sure hit for the whole family.
