This is a transportation museum that has plenty for young and old alike to experience. There is everything from airplane to horse drawn transportation exhibits, train displays, a two-headed calf, a chopped up convertible, etc - and most of them are hands on. An amazing amount of fun stuff to see and do, and there is a great outdoor play... More

I took my 5 yr. Old grandson today and we had a blast. Since he was basically the only kid there, he got to play with the trains, for quite a while. His favorite, however was the steamboat on the 3rd and 4th floor. He dressed up as captain and engineer, went fishing and loved the buttons that imitated, various... More

This small museum is located in a park to the west of downtown Covington in Devou Park. Transportation was the general theme though some exhibits like the two headed cow and the shrunken head didn't exactly fit in. Highlights for us included the model train layout, lots of information about the Ohio river including its river boats and floods, and... More

If you have kids and want to just let them go and explore a great little museum this is the place to take them. The museum is small enough the you can just let them roam and enjoy the exhibits. The train display in the lobby is great fun you can climb under the display and look at the display... More

When you first walk into the front door there is a great trolley or cable car. Visitors are allowed to go inside the trolley and see what they looked like up close. The museum centers on the history of travel and industry in the Greater Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky area. They have an annual Christmas train display that is a "must-see." The... More

This museum is in Devou park, in Covington Kentucky. Was a little tricky to find. Museum is nice but needs more exhibits.

A spectacular spot in Devou Park. Quaint, fully packed, informative historical museum. Don't miss this. In addition, on Thursday evenings during summer you are able to have dinner and enjoy local musicians while sitting outside reveling in the view. Go. Go. Go. Enjoy life

The Behringer-Crawford museum Is an unlikely institution in an unlikely place. More or less, it is the history of transportation in Northern Kentucky, from native canoes through the international airport. Trains, steamboats, and so on. But it is a small museum with a small collection that is quirky and utterly charming. Perfect for kids 5-12. They also have the single... More

Enjoy this museum so much, I bought a membership this year. It is currently constructing a new display but this did not deter our enjoyment much at all. The trains on the first floor are lovely with bubbles the kids can go through a tunnel to stand and watch the display from the inside. The Christmas trains are seasonal and... More

What a great museum! They have the last streetcar to run in Northern KY & a wonderful model train display with amazing detail. There is a 1959 Buick that you can sit in & watch movies. There are lots of activities for children including several "dress up" areas. The temporary exhibit about Vietnam was very moving. There is a lot... More
