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!

The American SIgn Museum is an informative , flashy lights place to visit. The setting is unique.
It is in an warehouse building, in downtown Cincinnati. It is nicely restored, but keeping the old like feeling. Self explanatory signs explain a lot about flashing neon signs. There is a guided tour if you are interested and have the time. The only "down" to the museum is admission price. It is $15.00 for adults and $10.00 for seniors. Seems a little high price, but I guess everything is these days. Do go and enjoy the "flashing" lights. It is part of America.

Took our parents from Chicago this weekend to the museum that was recommended by a co-worker and tripadvisor and it was definately a great idea. Everyone had a grea time. The museum is so well organized and interesting. We would recommend taking the tour at noon and 2pm on the weekends. It was a very famiyl friendly tour and learned so much about american history through memorabilia and signs. The founder of the museum did the tour and answered everyones questions easily and is very knowledgable. Would highly recommend this place for a wedding reception or corporate party. Thinking of recommending this place for our company's xmas party next year. Great gem we found in Cincinnati and are telling all our friends in the area about it. Thanks!

This place had some of the most beautiful signs, some very old from the early 1900's and some iconic (Big Boy). I recommend taking the tour. The owner gave our tour and his passion for signs was infectious. His knowledge made the tour and the museum much more interesting. It's got more to look at than you'd think.

This is a hidden gem. They've got a great sampling of U.S. signs dating way, way back. We were walking around and came across the sign we knew from our old neighborhood in California! I'll bet you'll see signs you knew one time or other, too!
