New Hampshire Farm Museum

The New Hampshire Farm Museum is a farm museum on White Mountain Highway (New Hampshire Route 125) in Milton, New Hampshire, United States. Three centuries of New Hampshire rural life are presented in the historic farmhouse. The museum includes a 104-foot-long (32 m) three-story great barn with collection of agricultural machinery, farm tools, sleighs and wagons. There are also live farm animals, a nature trail and a museum shop. The museum is located on the former Plumer-Jones Farm, a traditional series of connected buildings with farmhouse dating to the late 18th century and barns dating to the mid 19th century, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.

The Carroll County Farm Museum

is home to one of the largest collections of historic farm artifacts and machinery in the Mid-Atlantic region. Founded in 1966 by a group of like-minded county residents and officials in the Carroll County Government, they transformed the county Almshouse and surrounding property into a site for visitors to learn about the region’s agricultural heritage.

The Alms House was built in 1852 and opened a year later to assist people who had become ill, destitute or unable to feed their families. Each person was given one free night in the house and a hot meal with the stipulation that everyone must work the 340 acres in order to remain under the care of the steward and his wife. After 112 years, the Almshouse was closed in 1965. It reopened as the Museum in 1966.

The Coopersville Farm Museum

  Mission Statement ~ Inspiring memories of yesterday ~ ~ Serving our community today ~ ~ Preserving stories for tomorrow ~ The Coopersville Farm Museum was built in 2001 with the primary purpose to "honor farming and rural life." While that purpose continues, the Coopersville Farm Museum & Event Center has evolved into what is now a very active part of the community, very similar to the old grange halls in rural towns across America where people have gathered together for many years. The continually changing exhibits include collections from residents all over West Michigan, tractors on loan by Ed Hanenburg, feed sacks, tools, and barbed wire donated by Corky Pals, and art from many very talented people. That's just the start! The Coopersville Farm Museum & Event Center is a representation of the community. Come on in and take a leisurely stroll down Memory Lane and at the same time, you might discover something new! 

Rubber Chicken Museum

Open since 2018, this museum has set the rubber chicken world abuzz. Scholars from more than ten countries have visited in a quest to discover what makes rubber chickens funny. The exhibit features a scholarly essay by renowned rubber chicken expert Kirk Demarais that puts the rubber chicken in its correct historical context.

As if that weren’t enough, we also have a rotating display from Archie McPhee’s owner Mark Pahlow’s amazing collection of novelties. Called the “Room 6” collection after the locked room where he keeps his treasures. There truly is no other place to see items like this. You’ll want to return when the next batch goes in.

Visit the world-famous Rubber Chicken Museum located in the Archie McPhee store in Seattle, Washington. As the home to the world’s largest rubber chicken and the world’s smallest rubber chicken, you’ll stand slack-jawed in awe in front of our display of plastic poultry.
