From the ridiculous (BCM’s infamous two-headed calf) to the sublime (our fascinating collections), this family-friendly museum celebrates the unique arts, heritage and culture of Northern Kentucky as part of the Ohio Valley.
Examine a mammoth fossil, take a ride through time with the beautifully restored 1892 streetcar “Kentucky,” activate the engines, lights and music of a miniature, mid-century community in the Faragher G-gauge train display and even watch a drive-in movie from the seat of a 1959 Buick Electra convertible.
Travel through the region’s history along “Rivers, Roads, Rails and Runways” enjoying artifacts, interactive displays and hands-on activities.
Find yourself in the middle of a 1920s G-gauge model railroad town. Pilot a packet boat along the winding Ohio River. Stop in at the drive-in theater complete with a real 1959 Buick. Soar through the development of the Greater Cincinnati International Airport and much more.
