National Poultry Museum

Field review by the editors.

Bonner Springs, Kansas

Note: Opened in 2009, may have been absorbed or stored by the overall museum, which no longer promotes it as the National Poultry Museum.

A big rooster statue stands outside an otherwise nondescript building, giving people a hint of what's inside. Part of the National Agriculture Center and Hall of Fame, the National Poultry Museum is in fact the lifetime collection of Loyl Stromberg, a retired hatchery owner, and includes everything from antique incubators to old feed bags. There are also shipping crates, prize ribbons, models of the ideal laying house, a cigarette card collection of poultry breeds, 78 rpm records of poultry music, "Chicken of Tomorrow" contest posters, a display case of stuffed chickens and roosters, and an oil painting of Queen Elizabeth and a chicken that hangs outside the ladies' bathroom.
