The Museum: Who knew that toilet artifacts date back to 2500 B.C.?This museum displays those primitive relics and details the evolution of toilets across the globe. But the museum’s not just for laughs: founder Dr. Bindeswar Pathak’s mission is to highlight the still-present health issues from improper sewage drainage—namely those in India, where he says two-thirds of the country is without proper plumbing.


The Exhibits: Ever wondered why it’s called a “throne?” Look for King Louis XIII’s multifunctional throne and you’ll find the answer. To be used during open court sessions, it’s clear the king was not a modest man (and a master of time management).


Admission: Free.


Mon.–Sat. 10 a.m.–5p.m.
