Maybe not the finest of Brugge's many museums but if you have little time to pass it's worth a visit. You can learn all about the fascinating story of potato fries. You'll be amazed. A bit.

Although this isn't the most intellectual museum still learnt something. Was informative and fun...also great friett's and dips downstairs (possibly better than the huts in the square)

I wasn't particularly excited about visiting the museum but the group I was with was and it was a decent option considering it was rating in outside! The entrance fee was rather steep in my opinion and not worth it for the experience. There was lots of information about the potato and its origins. Upstairs was more information about the... More

A very popular if rather unusual museum telling the story of the potato from tuber to chip. A lot of reading but also a lot of interesting facts to mull over. Some interesting artefacts and exhibits from Belgiums frites history.. the chips are for sale at the end and are very good although they don't offer vinegar (only Salt) and... More

7€ / 15 min. It would be nice if the fees entry include some chips, but you must pay separate. The history of the frites potatos is not as interesting to have a museum. I would not recommend.

We purchased a combo ticket, entry into Choco-story and this museum. My two favorite parts were the room with the different types of potatoes (pictured) and the last level with the frites cart and advertising. The chip shop in the basement was okay.

It was neat to see the stories and come actual factual information throughout the rooms. They had an interactive sticker sheet for kiddos. We also enjoyed the french fries with different sauces at the end.

Not great, whole place smelled like chip fat. They let us in not long before closing time which meant we had to rush around and no chance to try the 'frites'. Not really worth the cash. Something to do on a rainy day...

This is quite a querky little museum 14 euros for 2. Going from the early age of potatoes to the modern frites vans you see. Lots of old frying equipment and then you can go to have your own frites. They say they are the best and I have to say they were very good indeed. We could have had... More
