Poozeum – Williams, Arizona - Atlas Obscura

AO Edited


This small museum is dedicated to the study of coprolites, or fossilized poop. 


Have you ever had a close up and personal visit with dinosaur poop? (Surprise: some of it will look very  familiar!) If you’re driving through Williams, Arizona along Highway 40, possibly on your way to the Grand Canyon, here’s your chance. 

The Poozeum (get it?) is weird and scientific, doesn’t smell bad, and will thrill any dinosaur-loving kid and adult. It has dozens of displays of big and little poop, and a four-foot-long plop from the Titanosaur, the world’s largest pooper. (It’s a replica, but still…)

Unlike the average person, the museum’s curator really knows his s**t. Weirdly, he’s been collecting the stuff since he was 14 years old. He’ll tell you where he collected the poop, explain the size of each of the poops (and describe the original pooper), how the poop got its shape, why it has that poop-ish color, and with a little prompting, let you touch some of the poop.

Like any good museum, there’s a gift shop with T-shirts, coffee mugs, and other poop-related paraphernalia.
