Went with three kids, was a little nervous the staff would freak out when they saw three small kids enter but she was great with them. She pointed out all of the places for them to look for things they would likely be interested in and they had a great time for minimal cost.

Don't miss this unique museum. You will be surprised at how much is in the museum. This is not your wooden doll nutcracker museum - it is the real deal. Very enjoyable. You get your money's worth.

If you like Nutcracker you will love the museum. There is also a nutcracker store on the main drag with figures selling from $5.00 to more than $500!!

This store has hundreds and hundreds of nutcrackers. Each is unique. If you can find it here, you can't find it anywhere. Great place to "window shop". Even better place to pick up a nutcracker for your collection.

It's almost easy to miss the entrance to this little must-see treasure trove of Bavarian history and the nutcracker. Until we visited, I had no idea what an intricate and beautiful art form of wood carving history has been instilled in Bavarian culture in so many different ways - there seemed to be an endless number of styles and centuries...

Interesting collection of over 5000 old, new and historical nutcrackers, plus an interesting shop.Somewhat erratic hours. Worth a visit when in town--but maybe not for a detour.

If you are into Nutcrackers, this is the place for you! More of a store than a museum. I'm sure a collector would go wild here!

There is so much to see at the Nutcracker Museum -- it's a lot to see in a fairly small space. Although I was apprehensive about taking the kids in, it turned out to be a great experience for the whole family. Whether you're looking for traditional & historic nutcrackers, or newer nutcrackers that reflect current social interests, this is... More

This museum shows so many different nutcrackers you won't believe. There are not only the typical decorative ones but also many mechanical nutcrackers from all around the world. Even some ancient stones which were used to crack nuts can be seen. They also offer a short movie about the history of nutcrackers. The museum is a non profit organisation so... More
