Fascinating collection of vacuum cleaner and family memorabilia that captures the design creativity that goes into common household products.

Even if you don't know anything about North Canton, chances are you've owned a sweeper -- or more specifically, a Hoover! This little gem of a museum is both fun and interesting. A "must do" for anyone passing through the area or visiting.

I have to admit, I didn't know this place even existed! Christine, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable about the Hoover history. We got to see the development of the vacuum over the years. Definitely a place to stop in and visit!
