My work held an event here and it was definitely a welcome change for the regular, boring venues. There is a large and varied collection of signs including some HUGE ones and all the lights certainly make for an interesting backdrop!

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.
