COVINGTON, Ky. - Covington residents get free admission Saturday to Behringer-Crawford Museum in Devou Park, just in time for its holiday attractions. 

What can you see? 
  • Holiday Toy Trains, which includes over 250 feet of track for model trains as they more through mini cities and rural farms as part of 30 interactive displays. 
  • Dickens’ Village, a gallery of hundreds of miniature, hand-painted ceramic mansions, shops, and figurines displayed as an homage to Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and other Charles Dickens’ characters. 
  • Wiley Wahoo’s Winter Wonderland, an animated exhibit based on “The Holiday Adventures of Wiley Wahoo & Me!”, the children’s book by Kenton Hills author Diana Grady. 
And of course the museum’s “non-holiday” exhibits which cover a wide range of historical topics in Northern Kentucky.
 
Keep in mind that in July, Behringer-Crawford was named by Cincinnati Magazine as No. 4 of “Top 5 Activities for Kids who Love History,” as detailed HERE.
 
The hours for Saturday’s free admission are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Residents will need proof of residency (valid I.D., mail, bills, etc.). Non-Covington residents pay $9 for adults, $8 for seniors 60 or older, and $5 for children ages 3-17. Museum members get in free.
