Is there a certain art to the way you clean a room? Can a machine have historical significance? You could survey the janitors and housekeepers of the world, or you could just stop at this museum and see for yourself. Attached to the vacuum cleaner showroom of the same name, this establishment, which has kitsch written all over it, is filled with vacuums dating all the way back to the turn of the century. Check out the Hoovers, Kirbys, Royals, Eurekas and more. Admission is free.

Though it was conceptualized in 2008 by Stan Griffiths and Ed Sinclair, vintageTEK opened its doors in 2011. An off-beat museum, it is a bit difficult to find as well. It is an ode to Tektronix, a regional electronic tool manufacturer who made headway in devices like oscilloscopes. Science and technology enthusiasts will surely get enthralled by their impressive collection of instruments, manuals, archives and books that date back to over six decades. You will also find the photo frames and Tektronix souvenirs interesting. They also repair old Tektronix instruments. Collectors can buy their surplus collection which are not displayed as well.

Home to the massive Howard Hughes HK-1 "Spruce Goose" flying boat, this museum provides a fascinating learning experience for anyone interested in the history of American aviation. At the entrance stands an F-15 fighter jet memorial honoring Captain Michael King Smith, the founder of the aviation institute. The self-guided tour takes approximately 2-3 hours and museum docents are on site if you have questions. Besides this, the museum is also home to a theater where you can watch documentaries and 3D movies related to aviation.
