Overview

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!

Take guided tour, helps put everything in context. Some very fun signs, and great memories for those of a certain age.

What a cool Museum. So many well maintained old signs. Both neon & other types. Walk easily from area to area while viewing some classic signs. We’ll set up.

I would highly recommend the tour! It’s free and details can be found on their web site. I don’t know that it’s every day.

This is a fun place, but in my opinion a 4 hour detour is too much, unless you are an old sign fanatic,
