OSAKA, Japan, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Video from a toilet-themed exhibition at a Japanese museum shows schoolkids donning poop hats and sliding down an enormous commode.

The giant toilet, which was part of the Miraikan museum's "Toilet!? - Human Waste & Earth's Future" exhibit in Osaka, allowed children to learn about toilets and how they work by sliding into a giant replica toilet while wearing hats designed to resemble human feces.

The exhibition, which has since ended, also included interactive educational materials about the nature of feces and the impact of human and animal waste on the environment.

"You will develop a completely new appreciation for the unsung toilet," the museum said in describing the exhibit.
