Really outdated museum. The placards are in several languages but are hard to follow. the fries at the end weren't great. But if you decide to go, you can buy a double ticket of this plus the chocolate museum.

An ode to potatoes and frites. It was a somewhat interesting way to pass an hour or so. The exhibits were fun and well done and I actually learned a few things.

Very interesting place. Loved the displays, and the architecture of the building. A different kind of museum but lots of fun.

Quite interesting museum, off the beaten track. Fun as something different to do, don't know of any other museums about potatoes! Learnt some fun facts. Somewhat low-level museum. Good for all ages. Can try some frites at the end (we didn't, as had just eaten)

An interesting museum with lots of information about the history of potatoes, the growing of potatoes and the preparation of chips. The highlight for me were the chip-related old postcards, artwork about chips and chip forks, and videos of people playing music with chip cones!!!...More

Takes you through the history of potatoes then chips. Lots of antique fryers etc which is interesting. And there's a shop which sells excellent chips as well which is very reasonably priced. A bit different and worth a visit IMO.

Everything you need to know about frietjes and then some. I think from an informative point of view, there is lots of reading material available. You can really learn lots about the old and new ways of how they made frietjes in Belgium. It's a...More
