About The American Sign Museum

Signage reflects the history, technology, commerce and culture of our communities. To tell the stories of signs and the sign industry, Tod Swormstedt, former editor and publisher of Signs of the Times magazine, founded the museum in 1999 as his self-proclaimed mid-life crisis project. With a mission to educate the community about the history of the sign industry and its significant contribution to commerce and the American landscape, the museum was organized to preserve, archive and display a historical collection of signs in their many types and forms.

The American Sign Museum opened its doors to the public in Spring 2005 in a temporary home at the Essex Studios (Cincinnati). With the collection quickly outgrowing its rented space, the ASM unveiled its permanent home on June 23, 2012, in a former clothing factory in Camp Washington, just northwest of downtown Cincinnati. The renovated building features 19,000+ square feet of exhibit space (with another 20,000 waiting for development), 28-foot ceilings able to accommodate sizable outdoor signs, a working neon shop, flexible event space, and an extensive archive of books, photos and documents reflecting the art, craft and history of signmaking.
