Weekly Gem #215 No Bones About It

Published 11/17/2019

Location: This Weekly Gem is located in at the intersection of Stone Way N, and N 45th Street, in Seattle, WA (see the  Clue Me! Map ). 

There is absolutely no reason for any of these chickens to cross the road. Here they have their very own museum – Archie McPhee’s world-famous Rubber Chicken Museum.

The museum is located in the back of the store, behind the velvet barricade and through the turnstile. It is free for all its distinguished guests. Here you’ll see the world’s smallest rubber chicken, which could fit comfortably inside a garbanzo bean. You’ll see the world’s largest rubber chicken which is much bigger than a breadbox (but could fit within after strategic folding). And don’t miss the prized “Chicken Flam Bleu” – a one-of-a-kind stained-glass depiction of a rubber chicken by the artist, Lesley Juel.

McPhee's Rubber Chicken Museum, where the rubber does not meet the road!

You may need to cross the street to get to the other side. No bones about it.
