'World's first toilet theme park' opens in South Korea

Take a look inside the toilet theme park!

The South Korean city of Suwon has opened what it says is the world's first toilet theme park.

Visitors can take a look at Roman style loos, European style bedpans and ancient Korean flush toilets, as well as learn "fun facts" about human poo!

There's even a toilet art gallery.

The Restroom Cultural Park was built in memory of a former Suwon mayor, Sim Jae-Duck, a man known locally as Mr Toilet.

He was reportedly born in his grandma's loo and worked hard throughout his life to promote better toilets in South Korea.

He loved loos so much he built a toilet-shaped house to live in - which is now a museum in the new theme park.
