Ever wondered what a museum dedicated entirely to the history of toilets would be like?
If that peculiar question ever crossed your mind-seek professional help! But if you really want to know, you can visit Sulabh in New Delhi, India.
Museums as repositories for the preservation and exhibition of the objects of historical, scientific and cultural interest are found all over the world. But rare are the museums that display the evolution of toilets and their various designs.
The Museum has been established with the following objectives:
* To educate students about the historical trends in the development of toilets;
*To provide information to researchers about the design, materials, and technologies adopted in the past and those in use in the contemporary world;
* To help policy makers to understand the efforts made by predecessors in this field throughout the world;
* To help the manufacturers of toilet equipment and accessories in improving their products by functioning as a technology storehouse; and
* To help sanitation experts learn from the past and solve problems in the sanitation sector.
