Holiday Toy Trains,

Wahoo's Winter Wonderland,

Christmas in Victorian England and More!

Now Through January 14, 2018

Behringer-Crawford Museum's beloved trains are rolling now through Sunday, January 14, 2018, with 250 feet of track and more than 30 guest-activated displays plus Polar Express readings, a Charles Dickens display and special holiday exhibits.
New this year -- Wahoo's Winter Wonderland, a kid-sized, animated exhibit based on the children's book by Kenton Hills author Diana Grady, "The Holiday Adventures of Wiley Wahoo & Me!" The three-room display follows two canine friends as they explore seasonal activities throughout Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati, featuring local landmarks including the Fountain Square Ice Rink, the Suspension Bridge, the Carroll Chimes Bell Tower in MainStrasse Village,  the Newport Aquarium, Behringer-Crawford Museum and more.
Special Sunday story hours will take place at 2 p.m. on Nov. 26, Dec. 3, Dec. 10 and Dec. 17, with local children's librarians reading Grady's book along with the holiday classic, Polar Express. The story hours, which include crafts, refreshments and a visit from Santa, are included with museum admission, but space is limited, so reservations are required.
