Owner description: 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!

“Don't be hesitant...Just Go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

We almost skipped this, because we weren't sure how it would be. My husband is a big American Pickers fans, so that's why we went, lol! It's really cool! The founder gives the tours and he knows everything!!! If you live in Ohio, you should have a wedding reception here! It would be spectacular! The $15 admission seemed like a lot, but the museum is not for profit, so that was more understandable.

“Worthwhile and Quirky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The American Sign Museum might be the only collection of its kind - we had a very enjoyable time re-living lots of Americana, memories of signage and products we'd forgotten, and learning about earlier times. The staff was extremely friendly, and the owner gave us an impromptu tour! This stop can be covered in an hour if you don't have a lot of time, but 2 hours is ideal.

“Toured during an event, wonderful”

This museum was a fun place for an event, in this case, a birthday party and was a wonderful trip down memory lane as a museum. We had a fun, enlightening evening.

“Be sure to sign up for the tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Todd, the founder of the museum, gave our tour. He is an amazing historian of signs. The signs on their own are fun to see. Todd really brings them to life. Rarely do you get to spend an hour with a person who is passionate about their work. The museum is not only signs that light up. It starts out with signs before electricity and then goes through the evolution of signs. We had heard that he had a sign that my husband remembered from his childhood but didn't see it. We asked about it and Todd took us back to the workshop for us to see it and even plugged it in for us. Don't miss this museum. Todd is doing great work.
