Behringer-Crawford Museum in the historic Devou family home (c. 1848 – 1880) opened to the public in 1950. It was so named because it featured the natural history collections of West Covington native and world traveler, William Behringer, and in honor of the museum’s first curator and noted archeologist, Ellis Crawford. Today, the museum has been transformed into a regional cultural center for residents and tourists to our area.

The mission of the Behringer-Crawford Museum is to preserve the history of Northern Kentucky through the lens of transportation. One of the museums transportation-themed exhibits include a restored 19th Century streetcar, the “Kentucky.”

Before the Behringer-Crawford Museum became a history of transportation museum, it was a museum of natural curiosities, which are still on exhibit. Visitors love the two-headed calf and the shrunken head! This site is on the Historic Tour, Arts and Culture Tour and Unexpected Covington Tour. Open to the public • Hours: Tues-Sat 10-5, Sun 1-5
