There’s only one place in the world where you can find more than 8,000 fossils of poop, and that load is in Williams.

George Frandsen founded the Poozeum a decade ago. It started off as a website for all things fossilized poop.

But after spending the last 28 years collecting more than 8,000 specimens, it was time to create the world’s first ever poop museum.

Visitors can immerse themselves in feces from across the animal kingdom.  There's a case that talks about how you can gauge a crocodile’s length by the width of its poop. It’s called wide load.

Frandsen hopes his collection will inspire curiosity and bring forward a deeper appreciation for the natural oddities of life.

The museum is free for all ages.
