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!

If you're looking for an offbeat date idea, this could be it. Doesn't take long to go through, but will definitely bring back memories & provoke conversations.

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.
