The history of the potato is very accurate and well done, from its birth in Peru to the fries of the Americans (passing through Belgium). My nine-year-old grandson loved the video game on the subject: shooting potato pests with an electronic rifle. He would never stop. The exhibition of frying machines is less welcome. And then .... a packet of chips at the end of the route would have been good!

Museo pequeño pero interesante para visitar, conocer la historia y el proceso de la papa y aprender por que las papas a la francesa son finally belgas. Recomiendo que vengan y coman papitas aquí al finale de la exposición están riquísimas acompañadas con pollito o carne y se pueden comer a la mano como lo hizo Barak Obama y otros famosos. Solo inconveniente hay que pagarlas y el servicio de las dos personas a cargo del restaurant es poco amable.
