This story from the BBC is, perhaps, one of the strangest celebrations of the toilet you’re likely to see. This museum of the toilet in South Korea does have a serious side – despite the female curator interviewed being unable to stifle a giggle.
The Restroom Cultural Park in the Korean city of Suwon is claimed to be “the world’s first toilet theme park“. Its museum has exhibits including Roman loos, European-style bedpans, and ancient Korean flush toilets. Visitors can glean facts about human waste or stroll around a sculpture garden dedicated to squatting figures.
The theme park was set up to highlight the problem of providing adequate sanitation in developing countries throughout the world.
Wherever there is effective sanitation, however, we also need effective plumbers and drainage experts like Drain Doctor. If you experience blocked drains call us on 0800 3357 999.
