Friet Museum - Review

Owned and operated by the same people who run Choco-Story, the Friet Museum seems to run on a similar winning formula, a museum based on a cultural treasure. In this case, potato fries. Specifically, Belgian fries. Otherwise known as French fries(which country made them first is an ongoing dispute). Located in the former Wool Hall of Bruges, that was built in 1399, and over the years it has been used by merchants, weavers, as an inn, a bank, a dancehall, a cafe, and a cinema.

The Gothic building has survived in pristine condition and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Inside, the fries museum is covers three floors. The first and second floors exhibit the history of potatoes, starting from the first cultivations in Peru circa 8000 BC, to the relatively modern 19th century history of fries and how they came to be in Belgium. A cafe is located in the basement.

Friet Museum, Bruges Reviews

  • Interesting facts about potatoes. The fries or chips taste awful. Taste like over cooked mass-produced cheap fast food. McDonald's is better by a long way.

  • This place is small, there's not much here at all. There's pictures about the history of potatoes and a bunch of reading plackards. We only went because we thought there would be free chips at the end!! We got liked too!! They only give you a discount coupon for .40 euro.... And the chips run you 2,20 euro... So webs of lies.

  • Great place to learn about the history of potatoes, and the history behind Fries. The cafe in the museum is pretty well priced too. Fries there are great as one would expect.

  • Brilliant in an ironic way. Like a pencil museum? You'll love it.

  • Who knew that there was so much to learn about the humble Friet!. You can fill an hour or so in here if you wanted too.
