Enema Collection

The collection was on temporary loan to the Lynchburg Museum at the Old Courthouse, but it is no longer at this location. The museum is small but has some good displays. Parking is at a premium.

Enema display.

Enema Collection

One Fleet Enema package and a pamphlet are all that are on display at the Lynchburg Museum. But it is a great museum anyway. However, if you're only looking for enema paraphernalia, you'll be disappointed.

Enema Museum

Not at the Fleet Labs anymore. All of the items were given to the Lynchburg Historical Museum downtown, and are on display there.

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.

Enema Museum

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.

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.
