Walk into an awesome 75,000 sq. ft complex of excitement, education and inspiration for the whole family.

The museum’s goal is to touch as many dimensions as they can—in display, art items, slate, and participation. So come prepared to do and get more than just see... remembering this is not a cleaning museum, it is a museum of clean.
