Museum of Toilet History

The Toilet History Museum is a private museum that opened on September 5, 2007. This is the only museum dedicated to toilet culture in Eastern Europe. Its exhibition covers all stages of the development of the toilet: from the oldest stone toilet chair to the first British water closet and the most modern waste recycling systems. The collection is constantly updated with authentic antique exhibits from all over the world. However, in addition to researching the history of latrines, the most important activity of the museum is disseminating information about environmental protection, sanitation and hygiene among schoolchildren and students.

The exhibits are placed in chronological order in 7 sections: “Primitive Society”, “Antiquity”, “Middle Ages”, “Renaissance”, “XVII – XX centuries”, “Modernity”, “Art WC”, and in the cinema hall you can watch a video about toilets in various European languages. The Toilet History Museum houses the largest collection of souvenir toilets in the world. It has more than 6,000 exhibits. Souvenirs were brought from all over the world by the owners, their friends and museum visitors. In addition to the traditional toilet figurines, there are various ashtrays, lighters, keychains, toilet-shaped tobacco pipes, and humorous signs showing how to properly use the toilet. The collection of souvenir toilets in the world set a Ukrainian record in 2010 and was included in the Guinness Book of Records in 2015.
