  • For an extra thing to do, I took my teen daughters here on spring break. They both enjoy art in every form. Perfect day trip. I personally learned alot and the girls had a blast!  more »
  • This is a great place to visit. It was quite enjoyable to see all the old signs. Had a lot of fun. I think it's well worth the visit.  more »
  • This is a great place to come for a stroll down memory lane. It doesn't take very long. And it's not very expensive. It's pretty neat to see the history of materials and textures.  more »

  • If you like history and bright lights! Great for my artistic family to explore. Signs from history, all over the country, some local Cincinnati favorites too. Tours are informative (might be a little talky for younger children, not a lot of touching either). Great location for photos! You can rent the building for events too, really cool! Parking is free, tickets are reasonable. Good for a weekend day trip towards the city.
  • A bit smaller in terms of physical dimensions than what I had originally imagined, but they pack so much into a small space. I was able to come during a Wednesday afternoon when there wasn't many people there. The didactics for each sign are very informative and you can get a sense of history throughout societal changes and sign design changes. The neon sign making tutorial was the best part. The neon sign makers worked with neon and argon gas during the demonstration and walked the tour through every stage of the process. Terrific. The tour guide we had for the signage was subpar, I was hoping for more stories about the signs and more technical facts, but it was perfect for kids and people are new to sign design. (I'm a designer and have a pretty good sense of art and history in terms of environmental signage). Great museum experience
  • Great little museum dedicated to the history of signs. Showing signs ordered by type from wood to modern plastic, you can explore on your own, but the greatest thing is the tour. The guide was enthusiastic, very knowledgeable and last but not least entertaining. The tour lasts about an hour and makes the visit really worth it. The tour doesn't cost extra. They said they are looking into doubling the space, do it will be worth checking back again later.
  • Very knowledgeable tour guide at the Sign Museum and great demo at Neon Works. Best museum visit I've had in a long time.
  • I'm so proud to be a member of the American Sign Museum. Todd has done such a great job putting it together along with all of the volunteers.
