The American Sign Museum (Cincinnati) will reopen to its members from July 1-5. (The museum is closed on July 4). Beginning July 8, the museum will be open to the general public.

The Sign Museum shut its doors in mid-March, but was still creating digital content for its website and social media channels. “I would like to extend a sincere thank you to all who have supported the Sign Museum during this difficult period,” said museum founder Tod Swormstedt. “Whether renewing a membership or donating to our emergency fund, following us on social media or commenting on Tod Talks – the outpouring of support is greatly appreciated and has inspired the staff and Board as we prepare for our reopening day.”

The museum will be operating with a reduced capacity, and encourages patrons to buy timed tickets prior to their visits. Reserved confirmations include a specific time to arrive and information about the visit. Discounts still apply for students, seniors, and military or first responders.

More from Swormstedt: “We have been thoughtfully preparing for our reopening, following all health and safety recommendations, including Responsible RestartOhio protocols outlined by the Ohio Department of Health. The health and safety of our members, our guests, and our staff are of top priority. It is our wish that our guests feel comfortable and safe when visiting, and understand what to when expect when they arrive.”

The museum is putting the following health requirements in place: temperature checks, face masks, 6-ft. social distancing and the admittance of no large bags, with coat check also closed.
