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 in an industrial area in Cincinnati, not exactly where you would expect a museum. The displays are very interesting, following the evolution of sign technology in the U.S. and people over 30 will find a lot of very nostalgic signs....More

Excellent assortment of signs. The museum is setup in a very historical manner, so it is interesting to read all the background information and see how signage has evolved over the years. Went a bit late in the day, so we didn't have a lot...More

I have been here a couple of times for private events. It is really a cool place if you like historical signs. If you don't like the nostalgia then this isn't the place for you.

Interesting museum. Well off the beaten path. Only takes an hour to tour the whole place. The guided tour is the best way to get the most out of your visit. The guide was very knowledgeable.

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.
