Museum of Clean

Don Aslett and his brother, Larry, were both on hand to show us around the day we were there. The passion they both share with the creation and operation of the museum is amazing. Who knew people collect vacuum cleaners, washing machines and other tools used in everyday life? Kids love all the displays set up to wash windows, vacuum and sort clutter. Very well done displays about cleaning, de-cluttering and creating beautiful living spaces. Anyone looking for ideas on how to make their space livable needs to visit.

The mission of this 75,000-square-foot, $6 million museum is to sell the idea and value of clean and to put clean into the minds of all who visit. When I walked in its founder, Don Aslett, started a tour that lasted two hours and kept me interested throughout!

The museum includes antique vacuum cleaners, carpet sweepers, brooms, washing machines, toilets, tubs, soaps and other cleaning products, a totem pole made from mop buckets, and much more. It has to be the most unique museum I've ever visited.

We've spoken with Don before, and he has a sincere love of clean and loathing of mess.

This is the best Roadside America museum that I have ever been to. It takes up a few floors of a large eco-friendly building. There are still several floors available for the museum to grow, and that is a good thing, because they continuously receive new exhibits. In fact, when we were there, we got a personal tour from Don Aslett. At the end of the tour we had quite a pleasant surprise. There was a UPS shipment from Houston containing a trash compactor from a space shuttle. It was opened up right before our eyes.
