CHICAGO (CBS) — The next time you visit Chicago’s Field Museum make a special trip to the restrooms.

They’ve been voted the best restrooms in America.

WBBM Newsradio’s John Waelti checked out what makes them so special.

It’s immaculate, the design is striking and modern.

The family-friendly water closets are spacious, and feature enough fixtures and stalls that families and school groups alike can get in and out quickly.

In addition there are powerful, efficient hand dryers, and child-sized facilities. Even the locks are specially designed to help the kids get out if needed.
