"For seven years we operated a stone Museum of historical pots and toilets, first at the fortress Třebotov and later in Prague. Now the collection is stored in a private depository, we lend the exhibits to other museums for thematic short-term exhibitions and filmmakers. together we look forward to reopening the museum after the reorganization and expansion of the exhibition.
Our goal is to de-taboo and popularize this area of human hygiene and to present objects related to it as highly aesthetic and of high quality even in terms of art-craft. We also want to highlight the technological advances and innovations taking place in this neglected intimate part of our culture. "
(From the introduction of the book "TOILETS, NIGHTS AND OTHER BACKGROUND" published in December 2019)
We were extremely pleased with the operation of the museum thanks to the positive feedback from visitors. However, we admit that funding from own resources, without subsidies and donors, is an economically demanding hobby. It is time to carry out more commercial activities, which also generate resources to develop the collection. Therefore, the door of the museum closed at the end of February 2018 and now the collection is in the depository. We are constantly expanding it and lending exhibits to other museums and filmmakers. One of them is currently filming scenes with Orlando Bloom in the new series. We expect to open the museum to the public again in some time, but now the ONLINE MUSEUM is in the final stages of preparations and in December 2019 a comprehensive book will be published on the historical development of toilets and potty, from recent history to the present. of the future and an extensive catalog part presenting the collection of the museum "TOILETS, NIGHTS, AND OTHER BACKGROUND".
