Museum of Clean, Pocatello

4.8
#3 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.

  • Admission was $6/adult and worth it! The museum seems to be growing but still feels like an intimate experience where a docent (the museum director Brad in our case) will lead you on a punny walk through some of the museum’s more interesting items. There is thoughtful information about trash and recycling in addition to many vacuums. The highlight was meeting Don the founder- he obviously loves what he does and as new business owners we were inspired talking with him in the library containing the many books he’s written.
  • In a world full of dirt and debris, this is a nice place to visit to learn about cleaning your home, mind, body, and soul. It is actually a super fun and hands on place. There are plenty of activities as well as games to play. You can wash a window, sweep a chimney, vacuum your kids. Really they have a kid vacuum. There are many fun and historic displays for every age and interest. Plenty of bad cleaning jokes and a handful of statues mad from cleaning projects. Well worth the stop.
  • A fun museum that teaches cleaning history with charm and humor. Many museums you come and look at old things, here they want you to interact with old things, very hands on museum. Very family friendly. While we were there we met the owner who was not afraid of grabbing things off display and showing us how they worked, clearly a guy who loves his job. The museum takes a very broad view on what clean is from political, environmental, historical and so on. The museum it self is designed with the highest Green building rate that was possible, the owner stated that if the museum of clean was all about being clean then it better live what it teaches. The museum is privately owned and as such is still a work in progress as funds become made available. Such a fun place to visit spent around 3hrs here total. Worth the trip.
  • Awesome interactive museum for kids and adults! When they offer you a tour, take them up on it. One time we got Don Aslett and the other time was Brad, the director. Both were fun and great with children. When you do the guided tour (same price as self led) they give a free cleaning book that more than pays for the cost of admission. If you get a guided tour, plan for at least two hours. Self led can be done in an hour. Best museum in Pocatello!
  • The 'Museum of Clean' is wonderfully different!! I enjoyed it and would live to go back! Interactive children's displays make it safe and great for children.
