  • Nice stop on my trip through Cincinnati. Local history, including everything from mammoth bones to a working train exhibit. Also, don't miss the two headed calf, the shrunken head, and the cow hairbal...  more »

  • We found this to be an interesting, albeit, out-of-the-way, museum. Lots of interesting exhibits to see and there is a good train set-up during the holidays.  more »

  • Great little space! They pack a lot into a beautiful museum inside and out. Always something fun to do with the kids and interesting exhibits for everyone. The Thursday night concerts are the place to be in the summer!
  • Best museum in the area. Very friendly and ├Čn formative staff. It has four floors of displays of northern Kentucky history and civil war displays. Has a nice interactive train display on first floor. Museum has expanded quite a bit over the years and has a nice outdoor area for concerts through the summer.
  • Thursday evening is the place to be. Great music in a wonderful atmosphere. One of Northern Kentucky's best kept secret.
  • Best place for little ones. If you need to get out of the house during the long winter so your kids don't go crazy or you for that mater this is a great place, Prices are low and there is so much for the kids to do also educational the way a educational attraction should be.
  • This is a wonderful local history museum. It has great content, friendly staff, and is family friendly. My two daughters and I visited on Smithsonian's Free Museum Day. I enjoy history and enjoyed reading a number of signs and displays covering various aspects of local history. My children were fascinated by some of the exhibits (the model city and trains on the first level were a highlight), but especially by the child-friendly activities to be found on each floor. I was quite impressed that each floor had at least one area for young children to play and interact with the theme of the area (i.e. train table, or fishing from a boat). My only complaint on the family friendly aspect is that the third floor men's room did not have a changing table. I didn't visit the restroom on the first floor to know if it had one. After going through the building we enjoyed visiting the small playground adjacent to the building. I was told that it was always free to visit. With free parking in the Museum's lot I know we'll be back to the playground for sure, and we'll also go inside to see the Museum's exhibits again.
