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!

Fun place to visit, easy to get to off I71/75 just north of the river. You'll see signs you remember from years ago as well as today. Some have significance to the Cinci area.

It's a small museum but so incredibly cool with well preserved and predominantly neon signs from all parts of America. We came at the tail end of the day so missed the tours available, but would recommend folks try that if possible. Even though it's...More

A great way to spend an hour or so. Stepping back in time to a day when advertising showed a lot of true artistic value.

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.
