'Beatles' invade Behringer-Crawford Museum

Combine the Fab Four with a fab photographer for sometimes intimate, always interesting insights on how the Beatles made history in Cincinnati in the 1960s at Covington's Behringer-Crawford Museum.

The museum's current exhibit, Cincinnati Meets the Beatles, includes Baer's amazing black-and-white photos as well as memorabilia from the band's visit Cincinnati Gardens.

"You not only get to get a visual tour though the Beatles history as a musical group, but also get the details of their journey through the Tri-state," says Sarah Siegrist, assistant director for the Behringer-Crawford Museum.

As if the Beatles weren't enough to lust over, the museum also features a fully restored streetcar that Siegrist says is in perfect working order. "If we still had the right tracks, it would run tomorrow." Just not in downtown Cincinnati.

Do Good:

Volunteer. The museum always needs volunteers to lead tours and help keep displays in working order.

Be an angel. Donations are always needed to help fund construction and provide admissions to families in need.

Visit. "We've always said we're the best kept secret in the city," Siegrist says. "We want to be the worst kept secret."
