The American Sign Museum has an interesting way of tracing America's history — via signage. Here, you'll find everything from a Phillips 66 sign to neon bar signs to old movie posters and more. As the museum's website relates, signs "reflect the history, technology, commerce, and culture of our communities. Signs and the sign industry have their own stories to tell."

One TripAdvisor user, who found the museum fascinating, offers a recommendation: "Take the tour with the owner of the museum ... he really makes it all come alive!"

The American Sign Museum is open Wednesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Sundays, from noon to 4 p.m. Adult admission costs $15, while children ages 12 and younger can enter for free with an adult. Entry for seniors, students and those in the military costs $10. We recommend planning to visit the museum at either 11 a.m. or 2 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday or at 2 p.m. on Sunday so you can enjoy a guided tour (included in the price of your ticket). You can ensure your place in the tour by ordering your tickets in advance online. You'll find the museum in Cincinnati's Camp Washington neighborhood, north of the downtown area. For tickets and more information, visit the museum's website.
