One of the best things to do in Richmond, Tasmania

Enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience at the Pooseum

The small village of Richmond in Tasmania is rich in history, with many shops, artisan boutiques, galleries, cafés and local attractions to enjoy. Richmond’s beautiful Georgian heritage buildings date back to as early as the 1820’s.

One of the best things to do in Richmond is to visit the recently opened Pooseum, a quirky science museum dedicated to all things poo. At the Pooseum, talking about poo is not taboo. In fact, we think it’s fascinating stuff. From the white splashes on cars and dog sausages in backyards to the droppings of kangaroos in the Australian bush, poo is all around us. Simply disregarding poo as smelly and gross means not giving it due credit.

If you’re looking for a fun, really unique and family friendly activity in Richmond, come and visit us at the Pooseum. We promise you’ll learn more about poo than you ever thought possible!
