Field Museum Bathrooms Rank No.1 In Nation

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.

In the women’s restroom, a private nursing space is reserved for new mothers complete with a couch and sink.

    They are very nice and the ones at the Science and Industry are nice and clean as well. The worst museum bathroom EVER award has to go to the Louvre. Mixed women and men. Half doors on the stalls and smell SO bad. Not sure they ever clean those.

    I’m sure everyone reading this can think of much better things for which the museum should be #1. A typical Chicago politician’s reaction will be to raise the prices for admittance and/or to use the bathroom!

    And who knows…you just might befriend a Congressman.

    Well, THIS being Chicago, in Illinois…the land of exorbitant taxes, I am quite sure it won’t be long before the city council or state assembly enact a “bathroom tax” now that everyone knows about these pleasant facilities. Leave it to the legions of lawyers/politicians to use this award/recognition as a way to further line their pockets at our expense!!!
