The Hindu, 22 May 2014


NEW DELHI: The Sulabh International Museum of Toilets in Mahavir Enclave on Palam Dabri Road has made it to Time magazine’s list of 10 weirdest museums in the world.


The museum run by sanitation NGO Sulabh International traces the 4,500-year-old history of toilets. It has a collection of several toilets across eras, including one that looks like a bookshelf.


The museum has come third after the Phallological Museum located in Reykjavik, Iceland and the Museum of Bard Art in Massachusetts, US. Other museums on the list include The Museum of Broken Relationships, Zagreb in Croatia; Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum (Osaka, Japan), International Cryptozoology Museum (Portland, Maine); Meguro Parasitological Museum (Tokyo); Museum of Medieval Torture Instruments in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and the Kansas Barbed Wire Museum at La Crosse in Kansas, US.
