History in Motion: Rivers, Roads, Rails, & Runways
Behringer-Crawford Museum in the historic Devou family home (c. 1848 - 1880) opened to the public in 1950. It was so named because it featured the natural history collections of West Covington native and world traveler, William Behringer, and in honor of the museum's first curator and noted archeologist, Ellis Crawford. Today, the museum has transformed into a regional cultural center for the residents and tourists to our area.
Featuring 450 million years of Northern Kentucky history and culture as viewed through the lens of transportation - Rivers, Roads, Rails & Runways, visitors enjoy hands-on, interactive exhibits and activities and purchase specialty souvenirs from the BCM Museum Store in a newly expanded and renovated 20,000 sq ft facility. Behringer-Crawford Museum is also home to definitive collections of artwork by Mary Bruce Sharon, Harlan Hubbard and Wolfgang Ritschel and presents a broad range of ongoing creative, innovative and fascinating exhibits and educational programs for all ages.
