From Thursday 24 March to Monday 28 March Wellingtonians can carry on with their Easter tradition and collect an egg from Clucky the hen in exchange for a gold coin donation.

Wellington Museum has recently acquired some fantastic objects from long-running Kirkcaldie & Stains department store after it closed in January.

Kirkaldie & Stains was a popular department store with venerable traditions such as a doorman in a top hat, an in-store pianist, the animatronic Christmas window displays, and Clucky the hen.

Clucky is one of the Kirks objects in Museums Wellington’s collection. She appeared every Easter for many years dispensing marshmallow eggs, and you can experience the same at Wellington Museum this Easter.

When: Thursday 24 March – Monday 28 March, 1pm to 3pm

Where: Wellington Museum, Jervios Quay

Price: Entry to Wellington Museum is free.
