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!

“Fascinating place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We arrived slightly late for tour but were allowed to join in with the founder going round- so glad we did, added greatly to visit.
What an interesting guy, answered all questions including things about funding and the business manager also let us see new area they have got with unrestored signs. Stayed 2hours and then it closed! Definitely worth a visit, do the tour.

“Take the guided tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We followed the advice of Trip Advisor reviews and took the guided tour, it was great. Really made sense of the displays as he described sign making from around the turn of the century to the 70's. Really fascinating and enjoyable, highly recommend a visit.

“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

A ' must see' in Cincinnati. It's an art museum of signs. We were lucky to get there just in time to join the 2pm guided tour and it was well worth it. Todd was a mine of information and knowledge about the signs and the history of signs and really engaging. It's not a big 'museum' and the tour took us about an hour. The signs are really cool and there is quite a wide variety of them. They just moved to this new location a year ago. It would be a really great place to have an event. Plenty of parking and a small gift shop.
