The Sulabh International Museum of Toilets is part of the organization's institute of sanitation. Surrounded by green gardens (it's very fertile, and you can guess why - these plants get some of the best manure in town!), the museum is free for visitors. You can visit any day of the week; they're open most days from 10 to 6, on Sundays and other holidays from 10 to 5.

There are two parts to the museum: an outdoor area and an indoor one. The outdoor one is devoted to Sulabh's work of setting up cheap, eco-friendly toilets that are accessible to all. Under an outdoor covered stretch, there are lots of different models of toilets, for different capacities, and showing the working of different types of cess pits, and so on. In the adjoining gardens, there are three statues symbolizing the work of Sulabh: of Gandhiji, Dr Ambedkar, and Dalit woman.

The most informative part of the museum is indoors, where, across one medium-sized room, there is crammed tons of information about toilets, hygiene and sanitation, and related aspects. There are framed sections of abundant text about everything from historical toilets (in Harappa, Babylon, Rome, medieval Europe, the forts of India, etc) to toilet etiquette in ancient India, to the norms about peeing and pooping in public, disposal of waste, and so on. There are astounding (and hilarious) anecdotes; inventions and innovations through the ages; toilet humour; crazy news (one about a gem-encrusted toilet seat Jennifer Lopez used to lug around as her own private porta-potty); and much, much more. There are models, of discreetly concealed old commodes, disguised as grand chairs or stacks of leather-bound books; of various types of toilets and disposal systems. There are even actual commodes, such as an incinerator, a tent-compatible toilet, a porta-potty, and so on.

The text is well-written, the exhibits carefully curated and very informative. The problem is that it's not very thoughtfully arranged; most of the text is in the form of framed sections, the paper all yellowed, the images faded. Sometimes the text is hung too high to be easily visible, and some of it is just too much text, without much relief.

But, despite those drawbacks, still an amazingly interesting museum. To understand the entire history of toilets and sanitation around the world, this is the place to come.

I found this museum on a list of 10 weirdest museums in the world. Since I was in NCR at the time, I decided to visit. It's pretty out of the way for most NCR residents, being way in the west. However those staying near Dwarka must go here! It's very different and highly educational. They have toilets from over the centuries and across the world :)

On many of the Sulabh’s offices and buildings in a row on the same side, it is very difficult to find it. It is not a separate building but in the premises of an office building.Closed on Sunday and without any fee it is surely unique. In one medium size hall there are so many different types of Toilets, some miniature o ones to one two storied one.You will also see variety of posters with facts about toilets around the world.

It is almost important to visit this museum to get an insight into sanitation history. While we got to know the history of sanitation way back from ancient times till date..we also also got to know about the efforts of Dr.Bindeshwar Pathak. This man deserves a salute for upgrading the sanitation system in the country and pulling up the downtrodden working in sanitation sector.
Guide of the Museum- Ashu explains everything elaborately. Her knowledge of the subject is commendable. There is a lot of trivia about toilets posted on the walls.. which makes an interesting read.
If one has a day free..this museum deserves a visit!

This has to be one of the weirdest and most interesting museums I have ever been to. Entrance is fee and you'll be offered an informative tour of the museum by a passionate guide who also explains Sulabh's work throughout India. Definitely recommend.

This subject is highlighted beautifully in this small museum in a crowded residential area. You get a free dicent tour which was interesting. Anyone interested in development issues would find this museum fascinating.

We were kind of intrigued by the idea of a Toilet museum and hence decided to visit it,. Not a bad place. Quite small actually, everything is basically kept in one large hall. But it was interesting to see variety of toilets coming from various parts of the world. A good place for a single visit, especially, with kids. You can cover everything in less than an hour. No food or anything inside the premise.
