Prague Is Relocating Its Rare Toilet Museum

Prague Rare Toilet Museum

Finally, it’ll be easier for tourists to experience some of Prague’s more unconventional historical artifacts. By the end of the year, a collection of historical toilets will be moved from Prague’s 2 district to Michalska 1 in order to be more easily accessible. The collection started when Gothic and Baroque toilets were discovered during the reconstruction of a 13th-century building near the city. Since then, the collection has expanded to almost 2,000 antique toilets and chamber pots. Among the esteemed pieces are a 19th-century chamber pot from the White House which could have been used by up to 17 American presidents and a chamber pot that was commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte.
