Thank you to Mike Kittridge who donated this hand painted portrait of Mr. Potato Head! Mike said it was his first attempt at portrait painting. It is a sweet addition to the children's area! Thanks, Mike!
Look who won the Idaho Potato Museum's basket that we gave away at the Eastern Idaho State Fair on Saturday, Sept. 9! The basket was filled with more than $125 worth of Idaho and potato-themed goodies! Here is winner Heather Thompson of Pocatello, Idaho with the basket of unique and fun gifts! Thanks to all of you for coming to visit the Idaho Potato Museum at the FAIR!
This is a little belated but the Idaho Potato Museum staff wants to thank all of those travelers who took time to visit the museum over the weekend of the Solar Eclipse! We had fun hosting all of you and hope you enjoyed learning all about Potatoes! A special thanks goes out to Amy Mireles -- Miss Idaho United States 2017 for dropping in on Saturday, August 19, to visit the museum and chat with guests and staff! Amy is from Shelley, Idaho -- just up the road from Blackfoot ! We were so excited to have her and her sister and nephew at the museum! She is pictured here posing with Shawn and Sara Horman and Alyssa Lee.
