  • Excellent history of American advertising signage over the decades. We weren't there for the guided tour but felt that the exhibits were pretty self explanatory and this was easy to tour on your own  more »
  • A trip that is filled with memories from decades past. This tour, self tour or guided, just proved to be a fun hour plus. The space is jam packed with such great signage from businesses that everyone ...  more »

  • American Sign Museum is a perfect weekend activity for families and friends. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Their collection of neon and light-up signs is amazing! It's not all that big - 2 hours is more than enough time to take your time and see the whole museum. Highly recommend checking this place out!
  • This place is awesome. I showed up after hours one day ( I wasn't sure of the times) the lady at the desk when I walked in was very polite and told me that they were closed and then she proceeded to reach underneath the desk and she gave me a free ticket into the Sign Museum for my troubles I thought this was very awesome as they did not have to do this me and my wife went back 3 weeks later and it was a really cool spot. I've recommended it too many friends who enjoy history.
  • This is a great way to spend a couple hours. The museum is tucked away but very easy to find from the directions on their website. Everything is on one floor so it is stroller/wheelchair accessible. I took the kids and everyone enjoyed it.
  • What a delightful gem in the Queen City's crown! For a long time, I have heard about this wonderful little museum in North Side, and finally we had a chance to visit it yesterday. It is a real treasure trove of nostalgia, and gives us a chance to again experience our childhood wonder at magical colored and blinking lights that decorated the street and roadsides of our youth, luring us to known and unknown pleasures of eating, travelling, and of buying and participating in all kinds of delights! There were a couple of lighted church signs, indicating that even God was amenable to a little flash and sparkle! Our guide, Kevin, was personable and knowledgeable. I am SO GLAD we spent about an hour and a half perusing the American Sign Museum in Cincinnati, Ohio!
  • What a great little place to visit that's off the beaten path. It was a lot of fun. My one wish is that it had a little restaurant of some kind. Little diner or something. That would have been adorable.
