Vacuum Cleaner Museum and Factory Outlet

Historic Route 66
Saint James, MO 65559


Our museum features vacuums throughout the decades beginning with the early 1900’s. Each room represents a particular time period with matching décor and vacuums that were popular, adding a fun history lesson to the visit. For some it’s even a joyful walk down ‘memory lane’ as they have a chance to see the kinds of vacuums they used once upon a time. Upstairs from the Vacuum Cleaner Museum, they're busy making Simplicity and Riccar vacuums in one of the only factories still producing vacuums in the USA.

The best part? Admission is free! 
(And we're open year round, execpt for major holidays.)
