The Canadian Potato Museum celebrates all things “potato.” Located in the community of O’Leary in the western part of Prince Edward Island, the museum houses the largest collection of farm implements and machinery related to the growing and harvesting of potatoes in the world. And, it’s surrounded by fertile potato growing fields where the humble potato has played an important role in the economy for many years. The complex also includes other attractions on site such as the Heritage Chapel, the Log Barn, the Little Red Schoolhouse and the Telephone Switchboard Office.
And don’t miss the chance to get your picture taken with the World’s Largest Potato sculpture, right at the front door.
Give yourself at least an hour to visit the main facility or stroll through the entire complex in two or three hours for a fun, worthwhile learning experience!
And don’t forget to try the fries!
