When Museumgoers Gotta Go

Ann Agee, Sheboygan Men’s Room (detail, east wing men’s washroom), 1999; vitreous china and glaze. John Michael Kohler Arts Center Collection.

Over the years I’ve visited hundreds of museums in dozens of countries and I’ve seen my share of museum bathrooms. Many are unmemorable institutional facilities, but many are worthy design destinations. The American Alliance of Museums polled their members on their favorite museum bathrooms. Here are some of the highlights.

The winner of the unofficial poll was the Biophilic toilets at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. I’ve been there and they are spectacular.

My favorite museum facility has to be at the Hundertwasserhaus art museum in Vienna.
