A Cornish man has just opened Britain's smallest museum-in his bathroom. 

53 year old history buff Shanty Baba has converted his old bathroom into a museum to celebrate the life and work of Victorian explorer Sir Richard Francis Burton, marking the 200th anniversary of his birth.

Sir Richard Burton translated both the Kama Sutra and Arabian Knights into English and spoke an extraordinary number of 29 different European, Asian and African languages.

The St Ives museum costs £8 to visit and can be viewed by appointment only.
