We drove by the museum the other day on our way back from North Cape, but it was closed. Knowing how crucial the potato is to the history of Prince Edward Island, we were excited to come back another day and catch the exhibit. If anybody can teach you something about the potato, it would be this place, right?
I am happy I can now say the Canadian Potato Museum is one of the most fascinating museums I’ve been through and it ranks right up there with our experience of the Natural History museum in Dublin. The curators are doing an amazing job. I learned so much about the history of potatoes in the world and on the island in the hour or so spent going through the exhibits. Wonderful stuff.
Some of it is captured in these photos, but it is well worth the time if you find yourself anywhere near O’Leary, PE.
