Like nearly every other creature on earth, we poo. With the right equipment you can find poo on almost any surface - it's everywhere and it’s inside us too.
Poo provokes strong reactions. Small children naturally delight in it but soon learn to avoid this yucky, disease-carrying stuff. Later, we learn that even talking about poo is bad. But for most of us, under the layers of disgust and taboo, the fascination remains.
Poo is important. We build huge networks of sewers to get rid of it. New research into our gut bacteria may herald the start of a medical revolution. We want to explore topics like these in a light-hearted way.
The National Poo Museum's mission is to lift the lid on the secret world of poo - to examine our relationship with it and to change forever the way we think about this amazing substance.
