A Quebec Museum Has A New Exhibition & It's Full Of Sh*t — Literally

The Musée de la civilisation in Quebec City opened its newest exhibition on June 17, called Oh Shit! — which should tell you everything you need to know about the poop-themed museum exhibit.

The exhibition will teach visitors everything they need to know about human excrement — from how fecal waste is managed in Quebec and around the world, sanitation issues, health crises and "the hope that comes with reclaiming human dejecta."

A statement from the museum says visitors will also learn how excrement can be reused as a sustainable resource to preserve the Earth. Plus, they'll explore their own relationships with their bodies and the taboo nature of excrement. 

Video games like The Wheel of Misfortune, Caca'MAn, Shoot the Poo and Super Microbiota can be found at the CACArcade, produced by the Montreal-based creative studio CREO, for an interactive experience on "the health issues linked to fecal-matter management."

Visitors can also immerse themselves in the experience of a collective Roman toilet, which is described as "nine holes cut into a stone bench, with bonus cleaning sticks." 

The Oh Shit! exhibition runs from June 17 to March 26, 2023.
