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!

It was inspiring to hear the stories of the life of William Henry Hoover, and the Hoover Company. The tour guide had a passion for history. The tour takes about an hour and it's free.

This is a guided tour of two historic buildings. My son loved this place! Artifacts aren't behind glass and the knowledgable tour guides made the experience even better. They answered his questions and seemed to enjoy sharing their site with us.
