The world's crappiest museum is about to open in England.

The Isle of Wight Zoo announced this week it will be the home of a museum dedicated to dung. The National Poo Museum will open on March 25, according to the Isle of Wight County Press .

Promotional materials for the new exhibit promise to "Lift the lid on a fascinating taboo world." Some of the planned exhibits include samples of freeze-dried excrement from various animal species and a 38-million-year-old piece of dung, according to the Country Press.

Although the museum's premise smells ripe for an April Fools' Day prank, a spokesperson from the Isle of Wight Zoo promised it was not.
