Sign Up and Become a Part of the American Sign Museum
Whether you remember what you see here from back in the day, or just enjoy the craftsmanship and eye candy, you can’t help but love the American Sign Museum. Want to be a part of it and help it thrive? Here’s how:
Become a Member. Your membership helps us keep the lights on – literally - while providing a few perks for you. View our membership levels and benefits and become a member today.
Adopt a sign. Are you a sign shop? Donate your services to restore a museum sign. Not a sign shop? Help pay to have a sign restored and/or maintained. Adopt on your own or get your friends or co-workers to join in. Pick your favorite sign, or we’ll advise you on the signs in greatest or most immediate need. Learn more.
Purchase a paver or paint a panel. Get it on the ground floor – literally – and have your message forever etched in stone in our walkway to the museum’s entrance. Or… if you’re a sign painter, paint a panel that will become part of our lobby wall. Learn more.
Volunteer. Become a docent. Greet visitors. Design a brochure. Update our mailing list. Catalog new arrivals. Replace lightbulbs. You get the idea.
Sponsor a storefront, themed or sign period area of the Museum. Sponsor a storefront on Main Street, or a themed area such as Porcelain Enamel, Signpainting and Gilding, Pre-Neon or Lightbulb Era, The Heyday of Neon or The Advent of Plastics or…
Save Old Signs (SOS). Have access to a crane truck? The SOS program commits resources for the takedown, crating, and/or shipping of signs the Museum acquires across the country.
Donate a sign or sign item. Donors are formally recognized for their donations via the descriptive tags accompanying each item on display. Contributions will also be acknowledged in the ‘New Acquisitions’ section of our new website – as well as in our quarterly newsletter and the monthly American Sign Museum column in Signs of the Times magazine.
Contact us for more information about any of the opportunities outlined above.
The museum is a not-for-profit corporation: all donations are tax deductible.
