  • For anyone who loves nostalgia, American History, a virtual walk thru the past up to today (a blast from the past) and just an eye opening experience, The Vacuum Cleaner Museum in St. James, MO. is a must see place. The Museum Curator, Tom, offers a rich and meaningful history of not only the vacuums, but of the culture that surrounded and influenced life in America. He has a wealth of knowledge and is very interesting to listen to. I feel more connected to the past than ever before. I highly recommend a visit!
  • Awesome rare collection of vacuums that walk you through history of modern man. Glad I stopped for this educational and very interesting free museum.
  • Love this place, if your thinking that a vacuum museum would be boring, well think again you obviously haven't been here the guy that walks you through and tells you all about it makes it very enjoyable. Trust me you will enjoy it.
  • Great opportunity to see the history of vacuum cleaners. Brought back lots of fond memories!
  • What a quirky place. When we saw the sign for the "Largest Vacuum Cleaner Museum in the World," we knew we had to stop. It was pretty geriatric, but maybe the elderly just know where it's at. The exhibits were so interesting! Our guide was even better. Would be a great stop for a family road trip. Or as a scene from a comedy about a family road trip.
