Why Vacuums?

1950s Vacuum AdSince this will probably be the number one frequently asked question, let’s save you the trouble of searching for the answer. In fact, you probably asked this question the second you heard there is a museum dedicated to vacuums. And while it might seem like a stretch to some that there could be an entire museum about vacuum cleaners, try to remember the last time you DIDN’T have a vacuum cleaner in your home. For most people that would be never. There has always been a need to clean floors, furniture, walls and everything in between and as long as there’s a need there will be vacuum cleaners. And as long as there are vacuum cleaners, there will be people who are curious, interested and, yes, even love vacuums.

At Tacony Corporation, we love vacuums and we love to learn all we can so we can live up to our goal of building the best vacuums in the world right here in America. We feel that by having a collection showing where vacuums have come from, we have a distinct advantage when it comes to figuring out where they can go. That’s why there seemed to be no better place for the Vacuum Museum and Factory Outlet than right inside our vacuum factory where Simplicity and Riccar vacuums roll off the assembly lines.

So take a stroll down memory lane with us and you just might see an Electrolux like your Grandmother had, or a Kirby like you used at home when you were a kid. Plus, you’ll have a chance to see many of the clever ways people tried to keep their floors clean before electricity! A quick trip through will give you an idea of how vacuums and even American life have changed over the last century, so even if you don’t love vacuums as much as we do, we think you’ll love the Vacuum Museum and Factory Outlet.
