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. View works by prominent national and international artists Mary Bruce Sharon, Wolfgang Ritschel, Harlan Hubbard and others from our region.  
 
NaturePlay@ BCM is an innovative outdoor play space for letting kids be kids -- running, jumping, climbing, swinging, using their imaginations, digging in the dirt and having quiet moments to look and observe. Music@ BCM concerts are “the place to be on Thursday nights” during the summer, while the annual Holiday Toy Trains display is a child’s delight in winter. 

This treasure trove of wonders is located in Devou Park and is supported in part by our members; the City of Covington, Kenton County Fiscal Court, ArtsWave, Kentucky Arts Council, Northern Kentucky Sports Hall of Fame and The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr. US Bank Foundation.
