The World's Only Rubber Chicken Museum is in Seattle

If you live in Seattle, you already know Archie McPhee in Seattle's Wallingford neighborhood is your one-stop-shop for gnome rubber duckies, safety monitor fezs, inflatable hammers, pocket-sized unicorn catchphrase generators, ready-made tin foil hats and flexible, shape-able party mustaches.

But now, Archie McPhee is also home to the only Rubber Chicken Museum on Earth.

Harold Simpkins has traveled the globe and says this museum is one of the newest wonders of the world.

“I've seen the pyramids of Giza, the hanging gardens of Babylon - or at least where they were. I can honestly say I’ve never seen anything as bizarre or wonderful as this," he said.

Admission to the museum is free, and grants access to see the world's largest and smallest rubber chickens, rubber chicken art, rubber chicken collectibles and one of the most famous rubber chickens around.

Roger "The Duke of Doo-Dads," works at Archie McPhee and says assembling the museum's collection was a team effort of employees, toy collectors and rubber chicken fans across the USA. Roger says the rubber chicken has been an Archie McPhee staple for decades and this museum is a tribute to its comic icon status.

Like many museums, you have to exit through the gift shop. And there's no shortage of rubber chickens to take home.
