Museum of Clean, Pocatello

4.7
#5 of 28 in Museums in Idaho
Quirky and oddly intriguing, Museum of Clean is dedicated to the history of cleanliness. Inside, you'll find a collection of vacuums, brooms, cleaning products, and toilets. The museum's library stocks books and magazines on everything cleanliness-related, while the art gallery displays newspaper clippings, product labels, recipes, paintings, and a section dedicated to the Chinese foot-binding tradition and slippers.

    As we were on our way to Idaho falls we stoped in this city for a rest and stumbled upon this hidden gem! As soon as we got there the people were very nice and we ended up getting a tour of the whole ...  more »

    You will certainly have something to tell your friends! Mine had never heard of such a thing, and they lived in Idaho! Don is a hoot! Clean is very funny!  more »

    Stopped by the Museum of Clean after seeing a billboard. We are always interested in off-beat attractions. The building is a lovely recycling of an earlier one from 1915. The exhibits have to do with ...  more »

    Very kid friendly! Lots of hands on games for kids and adults alike. It is a very large 3 story building, plan on spending about an hour or more if you want to see it all and play some of their games while you are in there. Highly recommend to check it out! $20 for a family if I remember correctly

    Great for the kids! My kids have never touched a typewriter until today. :) Unique items I've never seen in other museums. We appreciated the spacious environment and easy parking.

    This place is a labor of love, and it shows! While not quite as polished or interactive as other museums, the Museum of Clean offers an interesting perspective into what it means to be clean. The collections of antique cleaning equipment is interesting and I really enjoyed the art on display. The kid area in the multi-level metal sphere certainly looks cool. If you're in the area, it's definitely worth checking out.

    I was surprised at how much fun this museum was! It kept my 14 and 17 year olds attention for over two hours, which is saying a lot. It was neat to see the actual founder, Don giving tours and sharing his passion of making this world a cleaner place. Our first tour guide Brad was very entertaining and just as passionate as Don. I would definitely recommend a guided tour, you will be laughing the whole time. We even got a signed book!

    Fun family activity. Lots for kids to do. Definitely not one of those things you think of as a must do but it really is. Lots of interesting history and items. Museum director is very friendly and knowledgeable. We even ended up getting a tour from the owner himself. When we visit Pocatello we will go again. My kids loved it!
