"This is a wonderful place to go to learn about the history of Northern Kentucky. Easy to visit, easy too park, informative exhibits, friendly staff, a nice asset for the park and for all of us who live in KY. Try it!"

Behringer-Crawford Museum recently received the Kentucky Historical Society's Education Award for its 2017 exhibit "Korea: The Forgotten War."
The exhibit, displayed at the museum from August 5 to October 1, 2017, honored thousands of Northern Kentuckians who served in the Korean conflict, an era wedged between World War II and the Vietnam War which got its "forgotten" designation because it received relatively little attention over the years. It featured recorded oral histories, diaries, letters, photographs and artifacts, including uniforms, dog tags and medals. More than 6,000 people viewed the exhibit, which was designed to preserve the memories of the veterans and pay tribute to their service.
The award was accepted by BCM Curator of Exhibits Jason French at the KHS annual meeting in Frankfort, KY, on November 9.
