Even if you’ve got no particular interest in artistic depictions of poultry (and who doesn’t?), the Museum of Chicken Art is probably worth a look simply for the novelty factor.
Where else in the world will you find a facility wholly devoted to work that highlights the contrasting perceptions of the noble fowl in the East and the West?
The highly international collection includes paintings of chickens, chicken carvings, chicken sculptures (you get the idea)—many of which possess a surprising amount of beauty and nobility.
