Museum De Wemme hosts a new cultural history exhibition every year. The permanent exhibition consists of a large collection of handcarts.
Museum De Wemme, the regional cultural history and handcart museum in Zuidwolde, is a small museum, renovated beautifully in 2021.
The museum houses a new exhibition every year. The 2022 exhibition, Je kunt de pot op (figurative meaning ‘get lost’, but literally ‘you can do your business in the pot’) is a retrospective of the history of the toilet. It starts with those used by the people who built the early Neolithic structures ends with very modern contemporary toilets. The following themes are addressed along the way: What happens to our stool, How do we relieve ourselves on the road and What did people use to wipe their behinds through time?
For many it is difficult to talk about the topic, even though we do it daily. It is useful to think about it because good sanitary facilities are relevant to our health.
