About

The holidays are off to a festive start at Behringer-Crawford Museum on Saturday, November 10, when the Holiday Toy Trains launch their 27th year of delighting generations with more than 30 animated, guest-operated features and 250 feet of track rolling through busy cities and snowy countrysides.

Also on display for the second year will be 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 Grady’s dogs – Wiley Wahoo, a crafty Weimaraner, and Roz, a free-spirited Jack Russell terrier – as they explore holiday activities around the region, featuring miniature versions of local landmarks, including the Fountain Square ice rink, the Roebling suspension bridge, the Carroll Chimes bell tower in Mainstrasse Village and more. In addition, "Christmas in Victorian England," an elaborate, lighted display of Department 56 miniature scenes arranged by the Queen City Villagers, will depict characters and scenes from Charles Dickens' books and life.

Dennis Smith, president of Paper Products Company will display and discuss his collection of historic White House Christmas cards and ornaments.

On Sunday afternoons between Thanksgiving and Christmas, local children’s librarians will read aloud from Grady’s book and the Christmas classic, “Polar Express.” Holiday finery or comfy PJs are encouraged for the story hours, which include crafts, refreshments and a visit from Santa. Activities are included with museum admission, but space is limited, so reservations are required. Register at [email protected] or call (859) 491-4003.
