Behringer-Crawford Museum

Behringer-Crawford Museum

The combination of entertainment and education of NKY’s history and culture is a hallmark of BCM, where children and adults learn as they play through 16 permanent and six rotating exhibits plus over 196 presentations and programs. Many of our programs are designed to reflect our area’s cultural and artistic heritage while promoting today’s local artists and their various media, whether music, writing, theater or visual art.

Arts integrated educational programming is offered throughout the year to school and civic groups and the general public through school field trips, outreach services, lectures on history and the arts, special camps on archaeology, music or art, and pre-school story time and craft activities.

We are committed to educating our residents, families, visitors, and particularly our young people as to the treasures–geological, historical and cultural–that we have right here in our own community where we live.

BCM Mission:

“The regional history of Northern Kentucky as part of the Ohio Valley must be preserved for the benefit of present and future generations. Therefore, the Behringer-Crawford Museum is a center for the collection, presentation, study and enjoyment of our natural, cultural, and visual and performing arts heritage,”

Northern Kentucky’s arts, culture and history live at Behringer-Crawford Museum for the benefit of all members in, and all visitors to, our community.

At Home, At Play

Program description

Can your students imagine living in the past without modern technology? Let them discover what their lives would be like if they were boys and girls living during the 1800s. In this program, students will journey back in time to examine how pioneers once lived. Students pretend to be pioneers engaging in authentic, interactive activities of the time period. Working together to complete pioneer chores and to play old-style games students will understand how the life-styles of people have changed over time.
