In 1993, the Canadian Potato Museum has begun its flourishing business. Prior to becoming the Canadian Potato Museum, it was a community museum opened in 1967. The community museum was a small potato exhibit which held a small gift shop and a tiny kitchen that had no deep fryer. The community museum also shared the building with 2 classrooms. In 1992 construction began to turn the community museum into the Canadian Potato Museum. In the last three years (2013-2015) the potato museum held a potato contest which, to date, has raised $114, 000. In 2014 the museum won the premiere award represented by T.I.A.P.E.I. and CNN rated the Canadian Potato Museum as one of the top 11 food museums. The museum’s services now include food, tourist information, farm tours and an enlarged gift shop.
