Last Thursday, while you were busy with your "life," the Vacuum Cleaner Museum
celebrated its grand opening in St. James, MO
What's in such a museum, you inquire? Oh, I don't know, how about..."500 vacuums spanning a century of progress"? (Click here for the press release
Or how about some celeb models such as "the official vacuum cleaner of Air Force One and the childhood vacuum of Emmy nominated actor, James Earl Jones"?
Much of the collection comes from Tom Gasko, the museum's curator
and a national dean of vacuum cleaner history and appreciation.
Admission is free. So next time you're staggering down historic Route 66
after a long day at the winery, be careful. You might get sucked in. Because it has vacuums.
