FOOD FUN: The World's First French Fry Museum Opens in Belgium

 
Posted May 13th, 2014 @ 7:12am

 

Considering humans have been eating potatoes for over 8,000 years, it’s amazing that it took this much time to open the first French fry museum.

The world's first – and only – French fry museum opened recently in Belgium, where French fries were supposedly introduced to Americans during World War I.

The museum has three parts – a section explaining the history of the potato, another that offers information on fries as they are known today, and then an area for snacking and sampling.

A trip through the museum takes around 45 minutes, and costs about $8 for adults and $5.50 for kids.

And, of course, the lunch menu lets you choose between lots and lots of French fries. (Thrillist)
