Behringer-Crawford Museum becomes Holiday Central with its beloved Holiday Toy Trains, which have delighted Northern Kentucky families for generations. The exhibit includes over 250 feet of model train tracks, vintage Lionel and Plasticville trains, Thomas the Tank Engine and more than 30 moving, interactive displays.
The holidays get off to an early, festive start at BCM when our Holiday Toy Trains start their 27th year of delighting generations with more than 30 animated, guest-operated features and 250 feet of track running through busy cities and snowy countrysides.

 Dickens' Village

Dickens Village kensington palace 1

Just off the museum’s veranda, where the animated railroad display dazzles guests each year, is a jewel box of a gallery filled with hundreds of miniature, hand-painted, ceramic mansions, shops and figurines, all lit and decorated for the holidays. It is the museum’s Dickens Village, donated by former Cincinnati Realtor Almon R.Smith and arranged by a group of avid collectors known as the Queen City Villagers.

The village is an homage to Charles Dickens, depicting characters and scenes from his books and his life. There are Ebenezer Scrooge’s flat and Tiny Tim’s cottage, Portobello Market Road and Kensington Place, Fezziwig’s Warehouse, lamplighters, carolers and Oliver Twist. There’s also Gad’s Hill Place, where Dickens lived, and the Swiss Chalet, where he wrote. The museum acquired the village, which is part of the Department 56 series, in 2010. We thank the Queen City Villagers for their help assembling this exhibit, which takes close to 100 man hours to set up each year.rains, Wahoo's Winter Wonderland, Dickens' Victorian Village and all of our Holiday Traditions @ BCM displays
