|The Museum located in Tower Park overlooking the amphitheater.|
Like so many small museums around the country, it is staffed by eager and knowledgeable volunteers. They have crafted interesting exhibits that include the infamous Pearl Bryan murder, the fort’s role in the tragic Beverly Hills fire, propaganda used in the Art of War, and the Vietnam War exhibit that drew a record crowd. And they prepare exhibits for the schools as well as visiting students. Each volunteer brings a wealth of knowledge and skills and is eager to learn more. Deanna Beineke, director of the museum board, says that “the city and the fort have rich histories that are at risk of being lost if we don't make an effort to preserve and share them.”

Deanna Beineke, chair of the museum board, says that “Military units holding reunions have discovered our museum, and we have become a ‘must see’ destination for veterans visiting Greater Cincinnati…. A few hours a week will allow you to indulge your interest and give back to the city that you enjoy. There is a lot more to Fort Thomas than Pearl Bryan and Beverly Hills.”
If you have an interest in or want to learn more about the history of Fort Thomas, its people and places, then consider getting involved in keeping this little gem polished. Contact Deanna Beineke at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 859-572-1225 for more information.
