We hope you get “sucked in” to the idea of learning about the history of vacuum cleaners and stop by on your next adventure through America’s heartland! f you look up Small Town, USA on a map chances are you won’t find it. But if you’re looking for a place that looks and feels like every small town they sing about in all of those country music songs, look no further than St. James, MO. With less than 4,000 residents and located on Historic Route 66, St. James is home to not only our Vacuum Museum but also for our Tacony Manufacturing Plant where Simplicity and Riccar vacuum cleaners are made. So when you stop by for a tour of the Vacuum Museum make sure you ask for the deluxe tour which includes a brief viewing of the factory upstairs from the museum and meet the men and women who build the world’s best vacuum cleaners. *#3 Industrial Drive St. James, MO 65559 Toll free: 1-866-444-9004 *Factory tours are only available during factory hours of operation, Monday through Thursday, 9 AM – 4:30 PM.  Proud doesn’t emphasize enough how honored we feel to be located on and affiliated with Historic Route 66.

Good place for a quick look around to stretch your legs. I got to use a turn of the century vacuum cleaner, which was dope.
