We are home to a visual history of American Signage from 1870 through 1970. Hand carved wooden signs, gold leaf, electric light bulbs, and neon all grace our walls and tell amazing stories, especially when told by our founder and avid collector Tod. Take a trip down memory lane and visit us in the Camp Washington neighborhood of Cincinnati!

I’ve wanted to visit since a friend went and posted on Facebook and finally took the time to go and was not disappointed. Once you visit you’ll never look at signs the same way again. Or said another way, you’ll notice signs that you wouldn’t...More

For an extra thing to do, I took my teen daughters here on spring break. They both enjoy art in every form. Perfect day trip. I personally learned alot and the girls had a blast!

This is a great place to come for a stroll down memory lane. It doesn't take very long. And it's not very expensive. It's pretty neat to see the history of materials and textures.

This was fun stop with our teenage kids while in Cincy. A nice collection of signs that will bring back memories, and a few learning opportunities. An hour or so devoted to the museum is probably adequate for most casual visitors.

We first learned of this place when we visited the sign museum in Las Vegas. What an incredible trip down memory lane. unlike LV, this is indoors and fabulous. Great signs from our area and around the country. Nice place to reminisce.

Tour length depends on how many visitors show up. The Saturday we went, there were about 40, so the tour lasted about an hour. There was also an option to stay for a Q & A, and to watch the sign makers on site.
