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!

This is a hidden gem in Cincinnati; complete nostalgia around every corner. Learning about the different lighting and how the process works was a surprise bonus, but just standing under all the brilliance, it's truly a beautiful place to hold a party or wander through...More

I didn't come to this with any great expectations, but it was informative and a lot of fun. You don't realize how much a part of culture signs are until you really think about it, and this museum demonstrates that to you. I'd recommend the...More

We did the guided tour at 11am, which is much more interesting than just walking around and reading the plaques on your own - there's no extra price for the guided tour. After the tour we got to see how neon lights are made in...More

The older you are, the better this museum gets. They have every conceivable outdoor sign you can think of, all in generally good condition. I don't think anyone under 15 years of age, however, would recognize most of the signs. Their loss!

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.
