"What is the American Sign Museum?
The American Sign Museum is dedicated to the art and history of signs and sign making. The museum is proud to be the largest public museum dedicated to signs in the United States! Covering more than 100 years of American sign history in 20,000 square feet of indoor space, the museum is a walk through the ages of sign technologies and designs. Some signs, still in their original shipping crates, remain pristine. Others proudly retain a weathered look. The storefront-laden Signs on Main Street display recreates a typical Main Street Any-Town USA, with shop windows full of sign-related artifacts. Current sign artisans have added to Main Street's "look" by creating "distressed" signs to reflect the time period. See if you can tell which signs are which! Look for the revolving sign with its actual bullet hole. Don't miss the Burma Shave sign sequence up above. Enjoy a full-size, reassembled, Mail Pouch barn sign in a room filled with local Cincinnati signs."
