Mr. Toilet House
This week we are visiting Suwon and Korea’s Toilet Museum, or as it’s affectionately known Mr. Toilet House. Welcome to week 276 (5/4/2016) of Travel Photo Thursday. Yes, you read that right. We have a toilet museum here in Korea, and it was part of our Hwaseong Fortress Tour of a couple of weeks ago. Have a peek.
Surrounded by an impressive little park, which gets you up to speed on the many toilets that were available during the ages in Korea.
Mr. Toilet House
He looks a little surprised!? 🙂
A flush toilet for the ladies!
Where’s the privacy?
Only in Jeju!
Agony, or what!
Bathroom signs from around the world.
I have to say the Canadian signs had me wondering. I know that I haven’t lived in my home country for a lot of years, but I have never seen the bra and briefs used as a washroom sign. Can anyone confirm this one?
The golden t_ _ d…yup!
There are no actual washroom facilities in the main museum. You have to walk across the road to use the restroom. For a toilet museum, I must say that I was surprised that the washroom was not just a little bit jazzed up.
Upstairs in the same building as the washrooms is a kids play area. Your child can learn all about various kind of poop, and there were even a few poop games on offer.
I wonder what Rodin would have to say about this? 🙂
So long, Toilet Museum. It’s been a lot of fun!
Mr. Toilet House (as it is known here in Korea) is reportedly the first toilet museum in the world. It’s open daily, except Mondays and certain holidays. Admission is free. For full details re. Opening days and hours go here. Suwon is readily available from Seoul either by train or subway. The train is faster, and from the station, you will probably want to grab a cab to the museum. The information desk at the train station usually has English speaking staff and they will be happy to help.
