  • The place is located off the normal tourist route and not very popular with the tourists. The taxi we had hired had to ask around to reach this place. It is a small museum, but visiting this place was...  read more »
  • The name itself justifies the location the area near to this is disgusting and crowded. Especially when you visit in rainy season. 
  • I enjoyed my visit here. The Museum crams a lot of stuff into one fairly large room, capturing the history from 2500 BC through to today. The guide who talked me round the museum seemed to be well-inf...  read more »
  • I visited this museum with my grandson on 16-03-16. It was a unique and very knowledgeable experience. The museum is kept very well. The explanation by the lady guide was superb. (It is the first time I have used this adjective for a presentation. Everyone -specially school going young persons MUST visit this 'great' museum. My grandson was almost wonder struck.
  • A great amazing place to see in Delhi or in India. I was really amazed to see Dried Poop and the pictures of World's first Modern Sanitized Toilet in India during Harappan Civilization. And the Throne cum Commod and the English Commod of Queen with precious stones studded.
  • Amaznig one though saw it on telly onli. But an unique thing ever saw or ever heard. Wish to visit soon.
  • I had the privilege of visiting in 2003. On the surface, it is a collection of toilets. Interesting, but there is much more here. It is a social movement to bring sanitation and dignity to the poorest of the poor. The organization builds large public toilets and a place to wash yourself. A small charge is levied on men. Women and children do not pay. The sheer volume of visitors generates a cash flow. The money is used to build other facilities. It is also used to build and run schools. The schools educate the children of the people that used to make a terrible living hauling human waste in cans. Because we were interested in sustainability we were given a tour of the facility, the school, the compost operation, the biogas generation, and the Gandhi Library in the same compound. They have model systems built with the indigenous materials from all of the areas of India that can be built for individual or small group systems anywhere in the country. Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak is the founder and his organization is a model of good and effective works.
  • I just saw about this museum in a TV show freaky traveller on fox traveller. I live only 3 km away from this place and was totally unaware of the existence of this amazing museum in my neighborhood. I'm looking forward to visit as soon as I can take time. I so wish that the museum host is as amiable as shown on TV.
