Among the interactives on the tour is a push-button to activate a recording of Hoover salesmen singing, "All The Dirt, All The Grit," the Company theme song of the 1920s and '30s. Hands-on displays include a replica of the 1910 manual Kotten suction cleaner which require the user to stand on a platform and rock side-to-side to activate the bellows for suction; a WWII helmet liner and helmet; the 1956 Hoover Constellation canister which rode on a cushion of air; and the current Hoover Self-Propelled WindTunnel upright.

We hope you enjoy our work.
