So not shocking, there are lots of toilets at the toilet museum of both the the indoor and outdoor door varieties. Sulabh is actually a manufacturer of toilets facilities so their work figures prominently. There are also several articles about toilets and some bathroom humor. It's also a pretty garden area to walk around in. Nice break from chaotic delhi.... More

Museam has a great collection of models and pictures from the past to showcase how disposable system has evolved in india and foreign lands. A must visit for educationals purpose for toddler's and adults. Entry is free and staff... More

Indeed a unique place, but poorly executed (relative to the grandiose title). The guide we had, despite her amiability, had incomprehensible English which made it very difficult. Finally - until there's a nearby metro station, it's definitely not worth the long trip (actually - even if it was smack in the main bazaar I'm not sure it's worth the time..).... More

The museum is only a fairly small place with a few replicas but lots of pictures. It is entirely free of charge and they provide a person to explain some of the things to you. They go back a few hundred years up to present day toilets. Outside they have different toilets and a price of how much they cost.... More

This is a unique museum perhaps the only museum of its type in the world that has a collection of toilets from all over the world. Apart from the museum you can also learn about the kind of activities Sulabh International is doing in the field of sanitation not only in India but also the Less Developed Countries in Africa...

I was so happy I came across this tiny museum online before landing in Delhi, it's not very well known, but it's got a very interesting and definitely unique collection. Although the museum is quite small, it's really interesting because it shows you a different perspective on toilets throughout history, and different parts of the world. The visit wouldn't take...

Situated near Dwarka, is the subabh museum of toilets. It is housed in a big complex but the "museum" itself is located in a small lifeless room. The exhibits are maybe 6-7models and a lot of text presented in run-down posters and printed stuff. There are a few newspaper cuttings and a few lame jokes. That's all. Worth a skip,... More
