Sign museum

Recommended Posts

the American Sign Museum in Cincinnati. Tod Swormstedt has a great

collection in a relatively small space (the Holiday Inn "great sign" is in

two pieces due to lack of ceiling height.) And Tod walks you around the

collection explaining everything as you go. One noteworthy piece consists of

little neon cars orbiting a globe, once displayed at a location of cheap car

painter extraordinaire Earl Scheib.Definitely worth a visit.

I saw this "small space" comment earlier (It's from Glenn Wells' RoadSideFans report.) and had to smile. "relatively" is certainly the operative word here. A thousand postage stamps fit in a desk drawer. Get yourself a few Holiday Inn, Big Boy, and Earl Sheib signs and you're talking some noticeable real estate. The American Sign Museum is a wonderful addition to Cincinnati.
