Galleries, Museums and Collections

The award-winning Pooseum is a unique and quirky science museum dedicated solely to animal droppings. It is currently the only one of its kind in the world. Far from presenting toilet humour, the Pooseum is on a serious mission to educate visitors about the fascinating world of faeces. The museum offers more than 50 information panels and 40 videos on touch screens.

Visitors can compare the animal droppings of a wide range of animals, both from Australia and around the world. In the Digestion Room, visitors can learn how the digestive systems of carnivores, herbivores and omnivores differ.

Children love the PooTube videos, kids’ corner, farting machine, elephant scales, and other interactive displays. Several unique sculptures by international artists and items made from animal dung complement this exhibition. The museum’s Pootrid Shop offers a wide range of educational books, gifts, and other poo-related products.

In 2023, the Pooseum was voted “MOST INNOVATIVE MUSEUM” in the annual global Travel & Tourism Awards, held by LUXlife Magazine in the UK.
