Make Holiday Traditions@BCM
Your Family Tradition!
Now on display thru Jan 5
BCM is aglow with lights, music and the holiday spirit! Holiday Traditions@BCM has made its debut and the Holiday Toy Trains are chugging along the track for their 28th year. What began as a 4’ x 8’ train display in 1992 now encompasses the museum’s entire third-floor veranda with holiday toy models of all shapes and sizes.

Just around the corner is the spectacular animated holiday display, Wahoo's Winter Wonderland based on local author Diana Grady's children's book, "The Holiday Adventures of Wiley Wahoo and Me." Join Wiley the dog on his mischievous, winter adventure in a miniature display of Cincinnati and Northern KY landmarks.

Across the hall is Christmas in Dickens' Victorian England, a display of Department 56 ceramic miniatures depicting scenes from Dickens’ life and novels, arranged by the Queen City Villagers, a group of Department 56 collectors.

These are traditions that bring thousands of Northern Kentucky families back to BCM each year. Join us in making Holiday Traditions@BCM your own family tradition!

The exhibits are on display thru Jan. 5 and are free for museum members. For non-members, they are included with paid admission: $9 for adults, $8 for seniors 60+ and $5 for children 3-11 and free for kids under 3.

Wednesdays are Grandparent’s Days: one grandchild admitted free with each paying grandparent. Parking is free. For more information, call (859) 491-4003.
