Visitor Tips and News About Enema Museum - Temporarily Closed
Called on 9/20/2012 to ask about seeing the display. According to the woman I spoke with, they are currently undergoing some renovations and the display has been taken down. She believed that the display will be put back up, but wasn't entirely sure. She suggested that I check back at the beginning of 2013.[J. Woods, 09/22/2012]
This is not a museum, it is a display of medical devices that Fleet products replaced. I spoke with Tom Sherrier (director of human resources), who informed me of what the display is actually for. Fleet does not require appointments, unless you go past the receptionist, and you won't if you are going just to look at the display items. Everyone is very nice, and Tom is a good looking man, think Anderson Cooper.[McGee00, 07/11/2012]
We stopped by last year, and you're correct that "museum" probably exaggerates the size of the collection. But it's the only such collection that we know of, and it does help visitors appreciate what they've been spared thanks to Fleet.
Visits to the Enema Museum are by appointment only, so we called Tom Sherrier (sp?). What a nice man. He made sure that the receptionist knew we were coming and let us see the "museum." Alas, there is no gift shop, but she did give us a Fleet Ene-Man Christmas Ornament on our way out. Very nice people -- sincerely. Interesting collection...[Aggie Cutrone, 05/12/2011]
C.B. Fleet produces enema products at their Lynchburg facility. In the facility they have a collection of enema devices through the years. My wife visited it while doing some consulting work there. Visits are by appointment only.[Glen Thompson, 06/21/2003]
