Belgium is home to the world’s only Potato Fries Museum

Belgium is known for its delicious pommes frites, so it’s no surprise that Bruges is home to the world’s first (and not surprisingly only) fries museum. Known as the Frietmuseum, this place is dedicated to educating the public on the history of potatoes and the production of Belgian fries.

The museum was created by Cedric and Eddy Van Belle who also created the Belgian chocolate museum and the domestic lighting museum, Lumina Domestica. If you’re planning a trip, admission will cost you just six euros and you’ll get to sample some authentic Belgian fries in the basement of the building, too.
