American Sign Museum

Activity Overview

The American Sign Museum is a unique museum in Cincinnati, Ohio that features a huge collection of signs of all kinds. The museum was created by Tom Swormstedt, whose family has published the sign industry trade journal Signs of the Times for over 100 years, as a way to pay tribute to the fascinating variety of signs that are used throughout daily life. If your family likes to visit one-of-a-kind attractions you won't want to miss this museum, since it's much more than just a collection of signs.

  • Go on an hour-long guided tour of the museum in order to learn more about some of the most interesting signs in the collection as well as the history of signs in the United States.
