Idaho Potato Museum

This museum does a great job displaying everything potato (I loved the Mr Potato Head display), including exhibits about dehydrating, agriculture, cooking, and other uses of the potato. The collections of mashers and peelers were well done, and they are currently giving out free cartons of dehydrated potatoes to make hash browns. The gift store is a hoot and I love the sacks that they use! Well worth the hour side trip for a great feel of the agricultural surroundings.
