Frietmuseum

Want to discover the history of the potato and fries?

 

Then you need to visit the Frietmuseum in Bruges!

 

This museum is devoted to the history of potatoes and the production of Belgian fries. It describes itself as “the first and only museum dedicated to potato fries”.

Potatoes originated in Peru more than 10,000 years ago. The ground floor of the museum leads you  through the history of the potato.  Then it’s up to the first floor, to discover the history of the fries. End your tour with a trip to the basement where the medieval cellars house a cafe serving chips.

Yes, there are Chocolate Museums and Beer Museums, but this is something unusual to do while in Bruges.

And if you still want chocolate after you’ve enjoyed your chips, there is even a chocolate shop next door that serves delicious hot chocolate made with real chocolate……

Enjoy!
