FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo., Nov. 11 (UPI) -- A Missouri museum receiving the door from Saddam Hussein's prison cell said it is declining to display the Iraqi dictator's toilet.

The U.S. Army Military Police Museum at Fort Wood said it will display Saddam's 500-pound cell door, steel signs from the Victory Base Complex and some official documents, but it declined an offer for the toilet from the executed despot's cell, ABC News reported Thursday.

Tiffany Wood, deputy public affairs officer at Fort Wood, said there was no major reason behind the decision.

"We don't have a reason, really when it comes down to it. We're going to display the artifacts that we're receiving," Wood said.
