Barney Smith’s Toilet Seat Museum — Geocache of the Week

When you gotta go (geocaching), you gotta go!

Located in the detached garage of 96-year old retired plumber Barney Smith, the Toilet Seat Art Museum is open to visitors and geocachers alike. This bizarre museum boasts over 1,300 decorated toilets seats and a beloved Virtual Cache with 564 Favorite points.
